Hezbollah said that one of its three members killed yesterday in an alleged Israeli drone strike in Syria was Hassan Ali Dakdouk — the son of Ali Mussa Dakdouk, who is reportedly in charge of the terror group’s operations in southern Syria, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

According to the outlet, Ali Mussa Dakdouk was responsible for training pro-Iranian militias in Iraq with the aim of attacking American forces.

He was detained by US forces in Iraq in 2007, but was later released.

Four people were killed — said to be three Hezbollah terrorists and one Syrian — in the alleged Israeli drone strike against a vehicle near the Syrian border in the Golan Heights, as Israel and Hezbollah traded fire across the Lebanese frontier, with several Israelis reported injured.

While Israel’s military does not, as a rule, comment on specific strikes in Syria, it has admitted to conducting hundreds of sorties against Iran-backed terror groups attempting to gain a foothold in the country over the last decade.
