Hezbollah’s leader is reported to have contracted the coronavirus after meeting with a group of delegates from Iran.
On Tuesday, reports from Arab news outlets surfaced indicating that Hezbollah’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has contracted CoVid-19. Hezbollah is the Lebanon-based Iranian proxy on the Mediterranean coast. Nasrallah is reported to have contracted the virus after meeting with a group of delegates from Iran.
Several individuals within the Iranian regime have contracted the virus. Some have even died from it, including Hossein Sheikholeslam, who was involved in the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. Most recently, the deputy health minister and vice president of women and family affairs were diagnosed with the virus.
Adding to this, reports indicate that Russian and Syrian soldiers are distancing themselves from Iranian militias in an attempt to safeguard their health in the midst of the Syrian civil war.
