Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Iran “completely control” Syrian borders near Lebanon, Hama airport and surrounding areas which aids them in transporting weapons, Syrian opposition figure Firas Tlass tells Al Arabiya in an interview.
“Hama airport is the main transport hub for Iranian weaponry to Hezbollah in Lebanon and southern Syria,” according to Tlass, who also said Iranians “established an intelligence base for the revolutionary guard that is now as strong as the Syrian intelligence in the Damascus airport.”
This reportedly happened after the assassination of IRGC Quds Force Commander Qassem Suleimani, whose plane took off from that same airport, before he was killed in Iraq upon arrival.
Hezbollah loses trust in Syrian regime
The mistrust between Hezbollah and the Syrian regime began after Hezbollah’s Chief of Staff Imad Mugnieh was assassinated, according to Tlass.
Syrian Army General Muhammad Suleiman was allegedly responsible for communication between Assad and Hezbollah, but it is speculated that he had relations with the Americans and Israelis, Tlass said.
“After Mughniyeh’s assassination, Hezbollah concluded that Mohammad Suleiman had a hand in the assassination. Noting that Mohammad Suleiman was the main point of contact between the Syrian regime and Hezbollah. He was killed in Tartous by Hezbollah after Hezbollah met with Assad,” Tlass added.
