Top Western and Arab security officials have cut the Syrian opposition out of their decision-making process as Islamists that gained momentum in Syria sweep across northern Iraq, threatening U.S., European and Gulf Arab interests.Notably, the meeting did not include any representative from the Syrian opposition, neither the Syrian National Coalition nor the Free Syrian Army.Sources close to Hezbollah said that the party was considering a partial withdrawal from Syria, leaving fighters to protect Alawite and Shiite areas.The decision comes as the party's base begins to question the feasibility of fighting an unending war, with hundreds of fighters dying on foreign soil.
