BEIRUT, May 13 : Lebanon's Hezbollah announced on Friday that its top military commander had been killed in an attack in Syria where the Shiite militant group has deployed thousands of fighters in support of the Damascus regime.
The group said it was still investigating the cause of the blast near Damascus airport but it did not immediately point the finger at Israel as it did when the commander's predecessor was assassinated in the Syrian capital in 2008.
The death of Mustafa Badreddine, who had led Hezbollah's intervention in support of President Bashar al-Assad's regime since the start, came as a fragile truce in the country's five-year conflict teetered on the brink of collapse.    ?AFP
