Amidst fears the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad will not survive ongoing protests calling for his ouster, Hezbollah is seeking to move secret arsenals hidden in Syria to Lebanon, French daily Le Figaro quoted a western expert as saying on Friday.

"The Shiite militia is very nervous now. Its leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has spoken publicly only once in three months of protests...Syria is the back yard through which pass the weapons that Iran sends to Hezbollah. Hezbollah is due to bring out the maximum of its weapons before the Baathist regime falls," the expert stated.
