The leader of the Iranian-backed terror proxy is making his way back to Tehran out of concern for his life following recent activity in the region; Prior to moving, he cancelled all planned travel.
Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Iranian-backed terror proxy known as Hezbollah, is moving back to Iran from Lebanon indefinitely following the killing of Iran’s lead nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, on Friday. In addition to the assassination of Fakhrizadeh, Nasrallah’s move comes amid fear for his own life. At least one source hinted that Nasrallah may have already moved.
Fakhrizadeh was the second notorious Iranian official to be killed this year, and he fell at the hands of the Israelis. Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Commander General Qassem Soleimani was killed earlier in the year via a US airstrike in Baghdad. The two were equally important in their different fields and their deaths are beyond a major setback for the Iranians.
Nasrallah’s move, however, is no guarantee of safety, as Iran is where both Fakhrizadeh and Al-Qaeda’s second in command were both killed.
