Did Iran Guards kill Badreddine? Lebanon’s Hezbollah blames Jihadists

Hezbollah’s top military commander in Syria, Mustafa Amine Badreddine, was killed in artillery fire by jihadists, the Lebanese group says.

Badreddine’s death near Damascus airport was announced on Friday and initially blamed on Israel, Hezbollah’s chief enemy.

Badreddine was believed to have run all Hezbollah’s military operations in Syria since 2011.

Thousands of Hezbollah troops are supporting President Bashar al-Assad.

This has pitted it against several groups of anti-Assad rebels – from so-called Islamic State (IS) to the al-Nusra Front.

Without naming any group, the Hezbollah statement said: “Investigations have showed that the explosion, which targeted one of our bases near Damascus International Airport, and which led to the martyrdom of commander Mustafa Badreddine, was the result of artillery bombardment carried out by takfiri groups in the area.”

Takfiri is used to describe militants who believe Muslim society has reverted to a state of non-belief.

However, the BBC’s Arab Affairs Editor Sebastian Usher says questions still remain over Badreddine’s death.

A monitoring group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said there had been no recorded shelling or firing in the area for more than a week, although Hezbollah has not said when Badreddine died.

Many political assassinations involving Lebanese and Syrian political figures have remained unsolved, our correspondent says.

One member of the monitoring group was quoted as  saying: “Russia is monitoring  all the activity  in Syria and  is capable of pinpointing exactly where he was killed , if Hezbollah’s claim is correct”, adding  “it is well known that Badreddine was on bad terms with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, which is trying to take over the control of  Syria war effort.

The deputy commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Brigadier General Salami Hossein Salami did confirm 2 days ago that the Guard forces are fully supervising the situation in Syria , stressing that the Assad regime is part of the resistance front. Salami’s statements  which came hours after the announcement  of Badredddine’s death came  in response to the loss of control over the town of Khan Tuman, vowing to restore it from Al-Nusra front and the opposition factions within days.

Salami confirmed that the regime and its allies loss of control over Khan Tuman will not have a strategic impact on the overall situation on the ground.

One opposition group believes Hezbollah is trying to justify its Syria role by blaming the jihadists for his death but the  group believes  the  Iranian Revolutionary Guard is behind  Badredddine’s death.

        One wonders why he and the family had to ‘convert’ … but we can understand why he’d be totally pissed off at the gang in Lebanon.

            My RC cousin who ‘converted’ to marry a Jewish guy to please his parents (he is decent and not heavy with it at all), took all the ‘lessons’.. but she told me she realized she’d never be accepted in ‘the community’. A ‘forced religion’ simply isn’t one.

            I have met and done business with Leb Christians. Not one of them was a fan of Palestinians unless they were really good at carving shwarma at one of their restaurants.
            Then again, there have been Arab Christian intellectuals who for years have been trying to carry the banner of Arab nationalism, only to see their communities decimated and their works ignored.

            Irgun was founded by Jabotinsky, the chief of Irgun founded the Likud, less than honest, more genocidalist, how they treat the Palestinians..yes, ‘Europe and North America, they can be a little more honest.’ Germany did it in the open was punished and still pay.

            But Israel is more cruel than Fascist Nazi doing small genocides ethnic cleansing since 100 years, WW1, when the British killed Palestinians to advance the Zionist project, and then left.

            The “chosen” Zionazi pass it to next generations like a call from God. Israel owns 85% of Palestine, they will have to discreetly kill more. The Western media is owned by Zio big Corporations.
            They boast about it behind the Zio Wall.

            I think, Barry, that after shunting out 850,000 in the periods around the 1948 pogroms, allowing a probably carefully screened 3000 in during another horrible bit of the changing ‘historical mosaic’ 50 years later is hardly something to crow about.
            Even the Russian-dominated Ukraine allowed back many more of the brutally displaced Ukrainians after Stalin was gone – although making certain it wasn’t enough to be a percentage higher than the Russians who had been forced to move in, which undoubtably was some ‘screening process’ as well.

    For the very first time Hezbollah doesn’t accuse Israel directly, it could very well be Israel who took out Badredin.
    The story of the artillery fire by unnamed “takfiris” doesn’t add up
    Such a scenario, the artillery targeting of Badredin, requires the following
    1- Direct sight of Badredin’s movements at all time and live reporting once he steps to an uncovered area
    2- The immediate availability of up to 20 pieces of artillery that will pound such uncovered area relentlessly for at least 5 minutes to insure NO ONE survives and not only the target.
    While point 1 was certainly available for the evident success of the operation whoever did it, point 2 seems unlikely for 2 main reasons:
    – putting together such a precise artillery task force from “takfiri” controlled areas is unlikely, there are too many factions for such a concerted effort that requires a lot of secrecy and planning
    – a thunder of artillery fire needed for the success of the operation would have been witnessed, which it didn’t.
    So unless a “takfiri” threw a rocket in the air for the wedding of his 12 year old daughter and it happened to land on badredin taking a pee outside on a fresh May night, the artillery theory doesn’t stand.
    What stands among other theories the most in my opinion is a precision targeting Israeli style.
    Badredin was in sight and they took him out
    Simple and technically highly likely.
    As for the repercussions, the Israelis have noticed the weakness of Hezbollah’s revenge operations.
    Mughniye son cost them an officer. Quntar cost them some paint for some scratches on a patrol jeep. The odds looked good for taking out Badredin and it actually turned out to be even better than expected. Nasrallah didn’t dare accusing them, because that means that he will need to put together another lame revenge operation AND he went even further by delisting Israel from the list of accused by naming some douche takfiris after a very very serious “investigation”. In any case whether the Israelis did it or not, Israel has further accentuated the impunity of any of its action in Syria.
