Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah down with Coronavirus: Lebanese Media


Beirut — The chief of Iran-backed militant outfit Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah (59) has been reported to be infected with Coronavirus after receiving high-ranking Iranian delegation from Tehran this week, according to Lebanese media reports.

Lebanon’s well-known veteran journalist Maria Maloof reported on Tuesday about Nasrallah’s health condition in her Arabic-language tweet, which was later posted by Syrian opposition activist Bassam Jaara.

According to the tweet, Nasrallah met one of the Iranian delegations who was later found to be infected with Coronavirus.

However, the militant organization denies the claims and wishes not to comment on the matter.

Iran is badly affected with Coronavirus outbreak, which has claimed deaths of top regime officials. Among the dead are Iranian MP Fatemah Rahbar, an official of Basij Resistance Force Mohammad Haj Abolghasemi, Khomeini’s former representative in the Ministry of Islamic Guidance Sayyed Hojatol Eslam Hadi Khosroshai, two influential clerics Akbar Dehghan and Reza Mohammadi Langroudi, and a lot of top officials whose names are not disclosed by the Iranian authorities.

According to a preliminary analysis by Canadian researchers quoted by IranWire, the true number of coronavirus cases in Iran may be upwards of 18,000.
