BEIRUT - The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah group said on Monday it was ready to withdraw its commanders from Iraq once the Islamic State was defeated there, and denied accusations it sends arms to flashpoints such as Yemen and Bahrain.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah also dismissed an accusation leveled by the Arab League on Sunday that Hezbollah is involved in terrorism, saying the charge was "not new" and unfortunate.

Regional tensions have risen in recent weeks between Sunni Muslim monarchy Saudi Arabia and Shi'ite Iran over Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri's surprise resignation, and an escalation in Yemen's conflict.
