Phares to France 24: "Hezbollah's Syria intervention has brought Syria's war to Lebanon"
In an interview with France 24, Dr Walid Phares said "the assassination of a Hezbollah military commander in Beirut today is part of the war between radicals on both sides, those affiliated with Iran's regime and those affiliated with the Jihadi Salafists." Phares added that "Hezbollah's deep involvement inside Syria on the side of the Assad regime has triggered a wave of attacks by the Jihadists, under different names, inside Lebanon, and against Hezbollah's own structures and commanders. Unfortunately for Lebanon, the war between radicals will engulf the country for a while, unless a security plan would be applied under international auspices."
