Hamadeh: Syria left Hezbollah as ‘alternative army’ before withdrawal

March 14 MP Marwan Hamadeh told MTV station on Thursday evening that the “Syrian army withdrew only militarily from Lebanon in 2005 because it had prepared an alternative army to replace it and that is Hezbollah… while preserving its entire intelligence system.”

Hamadeh was speaking on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of the withdrawal of Syrian forces from Lebanon.

Syria withdrew its troops from Lebanon at the end of April 2005 following the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, who was killed by a massive car bomb in Beirut.

Hezbollah is one of the Syrian regime’s strongest allies in Lebanon.
