(Worthy News) - A university professor and former minister received the backing of the Hezbollah terror group and its allies Thursday, making him the likely candidate to be appointed Lebanon’s new prime minister.

The emergence of Hassan Diab as a possible candidate comes amid the country’s worst economic crisis since the 1975-90 civil war.

Hezbollah, which controls a powerful military force, has fought two major conflicts with Israel. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
