Hezbollah held a funeral for another one of its commanders who was killed in Syria.
Tuesday’s funeral for Hatem Hamadeh, also known as Haj Alaa, was held in the group’s stronghold south of Beirut.
Hezbollah sent thousands of fighters to Syria to back Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces. The group has reportedly lost more than 1,500 fighters including several key commanders since openly joining the battle in Syria three years ago.
Hamadeh’s coffin was covered with the group’s yellow flag and was placed next to another fighter killed in Syria, Jalal al-Afi.
