Hezbollah Denies Claims of Leader’s Death

A source in the militant group Hezbollah denied on Wednesday recent media claims of the death of its leader, Hassan Nasrallah.

Earlier in the day, social networks and local media spread the news that Nasrallah had died after being taken to hospital with a cerebral hemorrhage.

“This is not true. Such rumors are 100 per cent false,” the source in Hezbollah told RIA Novosti, adding that the rumors are a part of the psychological war that had been waged after Hezbollah’s achievement in the Qalamoun region.

In a comment to Sputnik news agency, a source in the hospital also refused to speculate on the situation saying only that “nothing unusual happened in the hospital.”

In addition, Nasrallah’s son, Jawad, denied the report via Twitter, deeming the alleged information as no more than fallacies and illusions.

On Tuesday, Hezbollah fighters along with the Syrian government forces took control of two strategic hills in the Qalamoun region on the Syria-Lebanon border.

Since early May, Syrian opposition and country’s government forces supported by Hezbollah have been fighting for Qalamoun.
