The threat of ISIS and other radical groups demonstrated to the world the necessity of Hezbollah remaining in Syria, the deputy head of the party's executive council said Monday.The Hezbollah official said a battle with radical groups has been imposed on Lebanon, which was now in the eye of the storm, referring to last month's clashes between the Lebanese Army and fighters from ISIS and Nusra Front.A cease-fire ended the fighting but Nusra and ISIS still hold at least 22 soldiers and policemen captured during the battle.While Nusra has so far released seven policemen, ISIS has beheaded two soldiers in a bid to pressure the government to agree to their demands.
