Hezbollah chief said to hunker down amid fears he could be targeted by Israel

8 0 0

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah is sheltering in place amid fears that he may be next on a US-Israeli hit list, according to an Israeli television report on Sunday.

Channel 13 reported that Nasrallah is staying put and canceling any “movements,” following the assassination of Iran’s top nuclear scientist on Friday in a raid attributed to Israel.

The leader of the Iran-backed terror group in Lebanon has been thought to be a target of Israel for years, and some officials have mocked him for staying in a “bunker” and only making very rare public appearances.
