Hezbollah allies suffer losses in Lebanon election

Preliminary results from Lebanon’s parliamentary election suggest allies of the Iran-backed Shia Muslim group Hezbollah have lost support.

The Maronite Christian Lebanese Forces party, which has close ties to Saudi Arabia, said it gained five seats.

Sunday’s vote was the first election since a 2019 nationwide uprising against a political elite widely seen as corrupt and ineffective.
