Nasrallah’s mother dies; unclear if Hezbollah chief will leave Beirut bunker for burial

The mother of Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has passed away, according to a statement from the Lebanon-based terror group carried by Arab and Iranian media.

“The honorable Mrs. Hajja Umm Hassan, mother of His Eminence the secretary-general of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, passed away to the mercy of God Almighty,” the Hezbollah statement says.

The funeral will reportedly be held tomorrow south of the Lebanese capital of Beirut. It is unclear whether Nasrallah, who has rarely left his Beirut bunker for public appearances in recent year, will attend the burial.
