Nasrallah says Hezbollah will stay in Syria as long as necessary

PanARMENIAN.Net - Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday, Nov 14, his militant Shi'ite group, which has been fighting alongside President Bashar al-Assad's forces in Syria's civil war, would stay in Syria for as long as necessary, according to Reuters.

"As long as the reasons (to fight in Syria) remain, our presence there will remain," Nasrallah said in a speech to tens of thousands of Lebanese Shi'ites marking the religious ceremony of Ashoura in southern Beirut.
