More than 2,000 Hizbullah supporters gathered in the Bekaa Valley on Monday to bury one of their fighters who a security source said was killed in the border area with Syria.

Hussein Abdul Ghani al-Nimr, 35, "died while he was performing his jihadist duty," said a Hizbullah spokesman from the eastern city of Baalbek.

A security source told Agence France Presse that the Hizbullah member was "killed in the Lebanon-Syria border region and his body was taken back on Sunday."

The funeral comes less than a week after a senior Hizbullah commander, who Syrian rebels said was killed in Syria, was buried in the Bekaa.

An AFP correspondent said throngs of Hizbullah members marched in procession from a Baalbek area mosque to a cemetery alongside Nimr's fellow fighters who carried the body.

"He was a good man and a good fighter, and he died as a martyr serving his country and fellow Muslims," Hizbullah cleric Sheikh Mohammed Yazbek, who heads the party's religious council, told the crowd.

Hizbullah has announced several similar burials in past months, without elaborating on the circumstances of its members' deaths.

The opposition March 14 camp and Syrian rebels have repeatedly accused Hizbullah of aiding the Syrian regime of President Bashar Assad militarily.

Activists in the Syrian province of Homs told AFP on Monday that Hizbullah fighters have been taking part alongside government troops in fighting against rebels in the besieged town of Qusayr near the border with Lebanon.

Foreign fighters fighting in foreign lands aside.... are you really that thick headed that you do not see the problem that any Lebanese would have with an armed "lebanese" militia that is claiming to be fighting Israel is in fact aiding a murderous foreign regime against its people??? Especially when said foreign regime is one that is extremely hostile and had occupied your own country for decades?

I will only take as idiots those who actually believe what ASSad's TV outlets tell them...10% of forces really? Do you honestly in your hear of hearts believe that? The country is facing its worse crisis in it history and you think that he would only use 10% of forces? Keep believing man! Tell me then what is hizbocrap's "jihadi duties" in Syria lakan?

More funerals....more funerals. The more dead Hizcocaine members the better. Arzak above has it exactly correct.

Just like the FSA promised 10 months ago, we will send all Hezbilat fighters back in coffins if they interfere in our war of liberation against the scum of al kurdaha.

Where do you get your inside information on God from? Fighting for lebanon does not guarentee anyone rahmeh from Allah. Allah byerham whoever he wishes, its not you who decide and you dont know if he is a killer or not. I bet you will say Allah yirhamo regarding murderers from LF, phalanges and SLA and refer to them as martyrs. Clearly, your issue is not about killers but rather about who agrees with your political views. Well guess what, God is not an LF:er nor is he an hezbullist nor whatever else silly lebanese tell themselfs God is. Dont speak about God to serve your own silly nationalism that God almighty forbade in the first place. God is not a lebanese nationalist in case you didnt know. Likewise, shiites need to understand that God is not shia!!!

Lebanese are a messed up people, each of the sects think they are gods chosen when in reality, all are worse than eachother.

They actually believe it is there jihadi duty to kill Sunnis because it the there hate of the sunnah, they think if they kill a Sunni they go janneh. But they are going to jahanam.

They do not have choice but to do the utmost to save the Syrian regime because they know the end of the Syrian regime will expose all they have done and blow the cover on all assassinations. Their fate is interwind to the Assad's to the extent that they have no other choice.

How pathetic. So much for the party that defends the downtrodden and the oppressed; just a bunch of fanatic power-hungry thugs with nothing but ulterior motives in mind. What's most ironic is that they're practically in cahoots with Israel now (in that both they and the Israeli leadership are clinging onto this horrendous Syrian regime). What a miserable excuse for a resistance movment; they've perverted the word completely, killing Syrian people on behalf of a despicable and brutal slaughterhouse of a regime, and they dare to call themselves a "resitance movement". Disgusting.

I can't believe how low level, uneducated, vulgar and superficial are the comments on most of Naharnet's articles. This is a typical and perfect sample of the kind of people it takes to start civil strife: Uneducated minds with hearts full of hatred.
