A Lebanese source affiliated with Hezbollah identified on August 25 two fighters of the Lebanese group, who were killed in the recent Israeli airstrikes on the Syrian capital, Damascus.
The fighters were identified as Hassan Yusuf al-Zabib from the town of Nmairiyeh in southern Lebanon and Yasser Ahmad Dahir from the town of Blida in the same region.
Hassan is reportedly the son of Yusuf al-Zabib, a key administrator in the Hezbollah-affiliated news channel al-Manar.
The Israeli military said that its warplanes struck on August 24 Iranian forces, which were preparing to launch armed drones at its positions. The airstrikes targeted positions in the vicinity of the town of Aqraba, south of Damascus.
Hezbollah has not released any official statement on the incident, so far. However, the group’s Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah is expected to reveal details on the incident in the upcoming speech.
