An Israeli website that is expert on terrorism revealed on Wednesday the identity of Hizbullah's new military commander, the successor of slain official Imad Mughnieh.

"Mustafa Amin Badreddine assumed his responsibilities as the party's new military commander,” the website, 910, said according to Palestinian news agency SAFA.

Badreddine is one of the party's founders and was the commander of several special operations, according to SAFA.

The website also published never seen pictures of the new military commander.

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon has accused Badreddine along with 3 other Hizbullah-linked suspects of being involved in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in February 2005.

According to the arrest warrant in the murder case, he is accused of planning and overseeing the execution of the assassination.

Badreddine, also known as Sami Issa, was born 1961 and has strong ties with Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and Iran.

He is a cousin and the brother-in-law of slain Hizbullah military commander Mughnieh.

He is a member of the Hizbullah’s Shura council and the head of its external operations.

He was arrested and imprisoned in Kuwait in 1983.

In 1990, he managed to escape prison and flee to Iran where the Revolutionary Guard returned him to Beirut.

The 910 website drew its name from the title given to the external operations' cell in Hizbullah, 910, and it strives to gather information on this unit and has also offered financial rewards for those willing to reveal new data about it.

Badreddine, is reportedly in charge of the 910 unit which, according to the website, is also behind the deadly blast in Bulgaria's Burgas.

Five Israeli tourists and their Bulgarian driver were killed in the July 18, 2012 bombing on their tourist bus. The identity of the lone bomber, who also perished, has so far remained a mystery.

The attack was the deadliest on Israelis abroad since 2004 and Israel immediately blamed it on Iran and its "terrorist" proxy Hizbullah, but Bulgarian investigators have however been more cautious. Iran denied involvement.

No wonder the STL picked him, high value target for them. But did they really think they could get Hezbollah's military commander so easily?

you and your israeli friends do what you can, anyways you will try, and Hezbollah will do what it can. History will tell.

"He is a cousin and the brother-in-law of slain Hizbullah military commander Mughnieh." Great; more inbred scum to brandish guns at us and kill our democratically elected representatives.

God Bless Sayyed Hassanallah for promoting this hero, this saint, this warrior to the position of Commander In Chief of the combined Lebanese-Resistance Armed Forces. Commander Mustapha and his 910 unit are the core and pillars of our noble resistance. His contributions in the Harriri murder, the battle of Qusayr, and the assassination of Wisam Hassan are immense. His latest successes in Damascus and soon in Kalamoun region in Syria are testimony to his battle hardened experience and perseverance. God Bless this Saint and may the Lord give him many seeds. Karbalaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

u people are full of hatred and unreasonable thinking. what makes me laugh more is that you are convinced that Hizbullah killed Hariri and what more funny is that u were convinced even before the stupid fake tribunal got into such conclusion.

Thumb LEBhasNOhope 16 October 2013, 22:08

what makes me laugh is that you are convinced the tribunal is fake. seriously, if you are going to tell people that they are thinking unreasonably, at the very least you shouldn't follow it up with an unreasonable thought on the very next statement. BTW- not sure why you are complaining about your "u people" hating someone who is murdering your fellow Lebanese!

So, there is now, and there has been for a while, two outside major Middle Eastern foreign players competing in Lebanon. Rafik Hariri who was directly and intimately connected to and serves the prime interests of KSA in Lebanon even more so than Hasan Nasrallah to Iran. I say that since Nasrallah does not have family connection with Iranian royalty. So, some say killing Hariri would not benefit Iran, Syria and/or H.A. who have Lebanon in a choke hold as opposed to Hariri who was loved by the majority? Now unless, there was a subsequent, contemporaneous, competing, intervening event Hariri did that jeopardized KSA and its ally the U.S., and those who were in control of Beirut at the time of the assassination who thought could kill two birds with one stone by killing Hariri, and logically pointing the fingure towards Syria and H.A. If that was the case, please provide us with something that resembles a 180 turn by Hariri.

We don't follow figureheads whether born out of armies, royalties or religion. Having said that, as far as I am concerned the jury is out on Aoun, and may be it is so since his hands are rather dirty. But than again, whose hands are not?

Default-user-icon muhami (Guest) 17 October 2013, 03:08

why should it matter who benefited from the killing of Hariri and How do you prove how they benefited. I assume you want us to say Israel benefited. I don't see how and we can argue about it for a long time. assuming they did benefit, how is that proof that they did it? I mean some man's ex-wife is killed and he benefits by by not having to pay her anymore, but it does not mean he killed her. So I don't get your point. I think you know who did it but you are unable to say it, for many reasons.

Another Israeli Hoax! Only God knows what Israel is plotting now and why they published this picture at this time. "An Israeli Website expert on terrorism" mmmm, seems very suspicious to me. Maybe Israel is planning to assassinate another figure in Lebanon same as the previous assassinations and blame it on Hezbollah. War against Hezbollah did not work, STL blaming Syria for the assassination of Hariri did not work, then blaming Hezbollah, now again blaming Syria, Iran and Hezbollah... soon they might blame Russia (oops hope I didn't reveal too much...). Anything coming from Israeli intelligence or media is non-credible in my opinion.
