Mourners in Lebanon have held funeral processions for three of the six members of the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, killed in a recent airstrike by the Israeli regime in Syria.
The ceremonies took place on Tuesday in the resistance fighters’ hometowns of Khiam, Arab Salim and Yohmor.
The processions for two other Hezbollah members are due to be held on Wednesday.
On Monday, Jihad Mughniyeh, the son of the late Hezbollah top commander, Imad Mughniyeh, was laid to rest in south Beirut. The 25-year-old along with five other fighters lost their lives in a fresh Israeli aerial assault on Sunday.
A source close to Lebanon’s Hezbollah said the movement’s response to Israel’s deadly attack on members of the resistance would be “painful.”
“The attack against six Hezbollah members will have a painful and unexpected response, but it can be assumed that it will be controlled to prevent an all-out war,” the sources told the Lebanese As-Safir Arabic political daily.
Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has also confirmed that one of its generals was killed in the airstrike.
Slain Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi had traveled to Syria to provide consultation and help the Syrian government and nation counter the Takfiri and Salafi terrorists in the war-stricken country.
