Hizbullah Has Significantly Cut Troops on Syrian Soil

(Times of Israel) Avi Issacharoff - Hizbullah has significantly cut back the number of its troops on Syrian soil, according to Arab media reports confirmed by Israeli sources. Estimates indicate that 4,000 to 5,000 fighters remain out of an original 8,000. Lebanese analysts say the cut follows the vanquishing of the Islamic State from most of the country as President Assad and his Russian backers reassert control. Since 2011, Hizbullah has lost 2,000 fighters, with 10,000 injured.
