Hezbollah secretary general Hassan Nasrallah, who has always denied the Lebanese party’s involvement in the conflict in Yemen, received a high-ranking delegation from the Houthis in his stronghold in the southern suburb on August 18.
The delegation was led by Mohammed Abdulsalam, a spokesman for the rebel group, along with two key members of the Political Bureau, Abdul Malik al-Ajri and Ibrahim al-Daylami, Intelligence online magazine reported.
This is not the first time that Houthi’s delegation has come to Beirut to meet Hezbollah, which supports the organization, particularly in terms of logistics and information services.
Intelligence Online quoted that this is the first visit to be publicly disclosed.
The delegation then moved to Baghdad and Najaf, the stronghold of Iraqi political leader Muqtada al-Sadr. The delegation arrives in Tehran on September 2, Intelligence Online said.
