Unconfirmed reports from Lebanon suggest that Hezbollah's leader, Hasan Nasrallah, has been flown to Iran for cancer treatment.

It is reported that the General Secretary of Hezbollah's condition recently deteriorated and he was evacuated to Tehran by an airplane sent on behalf of the Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The reports are said to have first come from a Lebanese television channel, Sawt Beirut International, though some have pointed out that the channel expresses anti-Hezbollah sentiment.

The Lebanon-based terrorist outfit, which is funded by the Iranians as well as through illegal activities worldwide, has come under fire lately following the revelation that the group was indeed responsible for the Bulgaria terrorist bus bombing last year. 

EU leaders are expected to take a decision as to whether Hezbollah will be added to a list of designated terrorist organisations.

The group is also facing tough problems in Syria, as their support for the tyrant Bashar al Assad has left them open to attacks from Syrian rebels groups. Fighting across the Syria-Lebanon border has flared up in the past few weeks, suggesting that the group does not have as strong a foot-hold in Syria as previously thought.

Last year, this website revealed that Hezbollah websites are believed to be hosted in the United Kingdom.
