The Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar reported on Monday several explanations accompanying the visit of the leader of the "Sadrist movement" Moqtada al-Sadr to Lebanon, which will last for several days.

Deir al-Zour also Syrian.
The explanation for Sadr's visit is his intention to reconnect "what has been cut" with the leadership of Hezbollah and its secretary-general Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. A source in the "mainstream" pointed out in the newspaper that the Iraqi leader's visit was "routine" and took a "family tourism character," as he had done almost six months earlier, and lasted about two weeks. Sadr, in his frequent visits to Lebanon, is keen to coordinate them "security" with the party, while the latter to keep them away from the media, and provide full logistic reserves in order to ensure his own security.

On the other hand, the relationship between the two sides is still the same as the past, as the parties are keen to maintain a continuous line of communication, but the opportunity to meet with Sadr, Nasrallah, for the time being, "is not included," especially that the transfer of the request of the first meeting of the second «is not true .
According to the newspaper, "the party is keen to maintain its lines of communication with various Iraqi forces (both official and political), and keep them open," but the relationship with Sadr remains within the framework of "privacy", preferably "be away from the media."

He also suggested that al-Zuhairi presented Abadi's point of view of deporting insurgents, and Baghdad's keenness to cooperate with Tehran and Damascus in the fight against terrorism.
