Our favorite terrorist may have been demoted, or not.
Report: Nasrallah replaced as head of Hizbullah military wing

According to London-based newspaper al-Sharq al-Awsat, Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has ordered Hizbullah Secretary-General Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah to hand over control of Hizbullha's military wing to deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qasim

Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has ordered Hizbullah Secretary-General Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah to relinquish control of Hizbullah's military wing to his deputy, Sheikh Naim Qasim, the London-based newspaper al-Sharq al-Awsat reported Thursday.
These reports, based upon "sources within the liaison and recruitment office of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards based in Lebanon," serve to confirm earlier reports in various media regarding this transfer of power from Nasrallah to Qasim.
Sources within the Revolutionary Guards operating in Lebanon, report that there have been marked differences of opinion between Nasrallah and Qasim as of late regarding key issues facing Hizbullha's military wing. This ultimately led Khamenei to restructure Hizbullah's chain of command, and transfer power to Qasim.

Nasrallah will continue to reign as Hizbullah secretary-general, as well as heading the organization's intelligence unit. Imad Mornia, Hizbullah's chief of operations, will continue to act as liaison between Hizbullah, the Palestinians, Iranian intelligence and the Revolutionary Guards.
Hizbullah was quick to deny these reports of turmoil facing its military wing. "These reports are utterly unfounded, groundless and lack all basis in objective fact," said Hizbullah sources.
"These reports of turmoil in Hizbullah's leadership stem from the world's distress at the support the organization enjoys, the lofty status that its leader Sheik Nasaralla enjoys within the Arab world, and the resolve that Hizbullah's warriors show in face of Israeli occupation."
