Iran gave the order to Hezbullah to instigate the war

An Iranian web site is claiming that the secretary general of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Larijani gave the order to Hezbullah to instigate the recently concluded war after a July 11 summit meeting in Damascus.

A well-placed source inside the clerical establishment told Iran Focus that prior to the start of hostilities Tehran dispatched several top officials including the chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) to attend a summit in Syria which took place on July 4 and focused on ways to upset the regional balance in the Middle East.


Days later, on July 11, following a round of talks in Brussels with European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana on Iran’s nuclear standoff with the West, Larijani made a second unannounced to trip to Damascus. There he met and held talks with Syrian Vice-President Farouk al-Shara, making the final arrangements for the actions that were to follow.

Finally, while meeting a top Hezbollah official in the Iranian embassy, Larijani gave the order for the Lebanese militia to mount the cross-border attack on the Jewish state, triggering the 34-day war which has left 157 Israelis and 1,110 Lebanese dead.
What I want to know is where Nasrallah was hiding out and whether the rumors that he was in the Iranian embassy in Beirut are true.
