Hizbollah campaigns for the release of Lebanese in Syrian jails

Just weeks after the agreement between Michel Aoun and Hizbollah, the Shia group is demanding the release of 25 Lebanese prisoners being held in Syria.

It's an unprecedented step - Hizbollah is regarded as a 'pro-Syrian' group in Lebanon, while Aoun has been moving closer to Damascus.

The Support of Lebanese in Detention and Exile (SOLIDE) group hopes Hizbollah will use its relationship with Syria to get the men out of jail.

Syria should show the Lebanese that when they are good to Syria Syria is better to Lebanon and the Lebanese.

Wrong story, nevermind.
