Report: Hizbullah Pulling Back from Israel-Syria Border

(Times of Israel) Stuart Winer - The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, citing what it described as "reliable sources," said that Hizbullah and its allied gunmen have begun withdrawing to positions 40 km. (25 miles) away from the Israeli border, and a similar distance from the Jordanian-Syrian border. The redeployment comes in response to a request from Russia, but Iran was refusing to do the same with its forces in the area. The report said Iran is refusing to pull back its own military forces from southern Syria unless there is a corresponding evacuation of U.S. and international coalition forces from the al-Tanf base on the Syrian-Iraqi border.
