Hezbollah is preparing to defend Damascus from an invasion by the Syrian rebels following a possible US strike, as well as preparing for retaliation against Israel if the situation in the area calls for it, Lebanese sources told Saudi newspaperOkaz on Thursday.
The sources told the paper that the Shi’ite organization recruited 10,000 fighters, who were tasked to defend the Syrian capital in the event the Syrian army fails to thwart attacks on it from both the rebels and the United States.
An attack on Israel, however, will only take place “after receiving a specific order [to do so] from Iran,” the sources toldOkaz.
The sources added that Hezbollah has intentionally remained silent in recent days because “the organization’s leadership understood right from the start that a military strike on [Damascus] is inevitable.”
