Kuwaiti media is reporting that Tehran is concerned over the safety of the Secretary General of Hezbollah arch terrorist Hassan Nasrallah after the expected fall of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the spiritual leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, has demanded that Nasrallah come to Iran out of fear that there will be assassination attempts on Nasrallah’s life in the event that Syria’s opposition takes power.

According to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Siyasa, the Iranian government has planned for two scenarios regarding Nasrallah and Hezbollah in Lebanon.  One option is that if Assad’s regime falls, a large transfer of Iranian weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon will take place, in an attempt to deepen its hold on the country. In addition, Tehran would also send reinforcement troops from Iran to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The second scenario, which according to Al-Siyasa is the more likely, is for Iran to quickly evacuate all Revolutionary Guards personnel based in Lebanon – and with them, transfer Hezbollah leaders including Nasrallah to Tehran.
