The leader of Lebanese Progressive Socialist Party , Walid Jumblatt said Wednesday that the Iranian regime has taken control of the region and argued that this has placed Lebanon at the heart of the so-called “Syrian-Iranian axis.”

Speaking to state-run Tele Liban, Jumblatt said the role of the Iranian regime in the region significantly expanded after the Syrian city of Homs fell into the hands of Syrian regime troops backed by Hezbollah, Daily Star reported.

“After the fall of Homs, Iran took control of the region,” he said.

“Today more than ever, we are part of the Syrian-Iranian axis,” he added.

Lebanese MP said recently that the decision by Hezbollah to join the war in Syria and fight for Bashar Assad's forces was a historic and moral "mistake" toward the Syrian people.

" Hezbollah intervened in Syria and did not care about the Lebanese (public) opinion," Jumblatt told the Associated Press during a recent interview at his home in Beirut. "This is a historical and moral mistake toward the Syrian people."
