Hezbollah, Iranians Fighting Rebels in Syria

Syrian Rebel Gen Selim Idriss claimed that more than 7,000 fighters of the Lebanese Shia movement were taking part in attacks on the rebel-held town of Qusair.

The US State Department has demanded that Hezbollah withdraw its fighters from Syria immediately.


More than 50,000 residents were trapped in the town and a "massacre" would occur if it fell, he added.

He also said he had received information that Iranian fighters were involved in the offensive.
