I am informed, though I find it hard to believe, that we leave for Uzbekistan next week.

What word or phrase is the bold section - i.e the adjective clause - modifying? And why?

thank you!

there are 2 clauses: dependent and independent.
1. independent clause: I am informed that we leave for Uzbekistan next week.
2. dependent clause: though I find it hard to believe

we can write this sentence in many ways as under:

1. I am informed, though I find it hard to believe, that we leave for Uzbekistan next week.

2. I am informed that we leave for Uzbekistan next week, though I find it hard to believe,

3. Though I find it hard to believe, I am informed that we leave for Uzbekistan next week.

Thanks Himalayan for your response.
From sentence to sentence, aren't the meaning of sentences changing?
