Hezbollah says ready to pull forces from Iraq after IS defeatHezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said Monday he was prepared to pull his forces from Iraq, after the Islamic State group lost control over its last urban stronghold in the country. In a televised address on Monday evening, Nasrallah said the Lebanese movement had deployed “large numbers of our commanders and cadres” to Iraq to fight IS. Once that official declaration came, Hezbollah would reassess its presence in Iraq and may pull its members out.
