Lebanese Hezbollah holds the Zionist regime responsible for the assassination of Imad Mughniyeh, one of Hezbollah senior commanders in Syria and a famous fighter against international terrorism. In its statement Hezbollah said Imad Mughniyeh, also known as Haj Rezvan, attained martyrdom in a terrorist attack by the Zionist terrorists in Damascus, IRNA reported.
The Lebanese Hezbollah also announced that Mossad, the notorious spying network of the illegal Zionist entity, had been trying to assassinate Imad Mughniyeh, the senior commander of the resistance, for more than twenty years.
In this statement it was also written that the "blood of the Hezbollah commanders" would elevate the Resistance to higher status, just as the martyrdom of Seyyed Abbas Moosavi and Sheikh Ragheb Harb helped the Resistance to expand.
According to a Lebanese political official who requested anonymity Mughniyeh was the victim of a car bomb in Damascus.
