Missing Hizbullah Fighter Killed in Syria, Buried in Baalbek

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A Hizbullah commander, who had been missing for months in Syria, was buried in on Wednesday after his body was repatriated following his torture and killing by rebels, relatives told Agence France Presse.

Hussein Salah Habib, 30, was captured by opposition fighters during the fight for Qusayr, a strategic town near the border that fell to the regime on June 5.

He was buried in the Bekaa city of Baalbek.

Armed Hizbullah members and fighters who participated in the battle for Qusayr were among those at Habib's funeral, an AFP correspondent reported.

His body had been missing for months since the battle in Qusayr, and was recovered nearly a week ago in the area of Tallet Mando, near the town.

"He was repatriated and DNA tests proved that it was indeed Hussein," a relative said.

"We were told that his body was buried under a mound of sand. He had been stabbed in several parts of his body and his face was disfigured," he added.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says at least 262 Hizbullah fighters have been killed in Syria since the beginning of the conflict in March 2011.

The party first publicly confirmed its intervention in the conflict in April.

How sad..... stabbed in several parts and his face disfigured!!!!

Still a more merciful end than what he and his fellow dogs did to the women of Qusayr.

More merciful, than letting the woman & children including wounded FSA rebels to flee to Lebanon? That was what they did.

The irony is that they are convinced and they have to believe that the deceased was a legitimate soldier who died for a righteous cause. But whose cause? You can't argue with people in this state of mind. As far as they are concerned they are doing the right thing, which may or may not be true, in the context of religious ideology fueled from both sides.

Mr. Propogandist it was Aoun that was wanted to have complete control of everything so he wages war on the Lebanese forces in order to disarm them at the same time he was fighting the Syrians. You are an idiot to believe your dady when he tells you the distorted truth. What did you expect the Lebanese Forces to do? Lay down and play dead? Or turn over the fight to coward tht claimed he will never leave the country only to run like a coward the next day and leave his troops behind to get slaughtered. Tell me genius. How much of better fight us Christians would have been able to put up had that traitor Aoun not divided us? Rou7 ya walad. Ma3 men jaye tikazeb. If I wasn't on my iPhone right now I would put links to all interviews found on YouTube that support every word I said. Let's not forget that coward went to Syria and declared the prisons free of any Lebanese soldiers. Wate w byswash sirmey. Tfe

Let us not forget that Hezbollah were the very last of the foreigners to go into syria. This happened only after several rockets were fired into Hermel and Baalbak. The Takfiris threatened that once they finish turning syria into an Islamic state with their version of sharia law that will govern the people under then they will turn their attention onto Lebanon . These Takfiris have destroyed syria, Afghanistan,Libya ,Pakistan Iraq and now are focusing their sights on Lebanon .
If all you readers are truly patriotic Lebanese and love our country then you should all be supporting Hezbollah and the Syrian government against these evil man eating, head chopping ,woman raping Wahhabi extremists.
I would bet that if foreign fighter every was to leave syria and have the Syrians sort out their own mess then Hezbollah would have no reason to be there. I love Lebanon and I don't won't fall into the trap that our corrupt puppet politicians are trying to set for us.
