Hezbollah commander Mustafa Badreddine 'killed by own men'

Israel reportedly launches strike on Syria as tensions rise

Tensions between Syria and Israel have been escalating over the past week, with Israel carrying out three separate strikes within a three day period, targeting Syrian military outposts and a Hezbollah convoy believed to be carrying weapons.

"Those findings show to what degree relations between Hezbollah and its patron Iran are tense and complex", he said. In 2008 Hezbollah's global operations chief Imad Mughniyeh was assassinated in Damascus, which some reports attributed to a joint CIA-Mossad operation.

The 55-year-old Badreddine was allegedly in charge of Hezbollah's military operations in Syria.

Badreddine was a key suspect in the 2005 assassination in Beirut of Lebanese ex-premier Rafiq Hariri.

In a speech on Saturday, Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah accused Israel of intervening in the Syrian civil war on a daily basis, and claimed that Netanyahu "fears the collapse" of the Islamic State group in Syria.

Mustafa Badreddine was killed in an explosion in the Syrian capital in May 2016.

Its military believes Hezbollah has between 100,000 and 120,000 short- and medium-range missiles and rockets, as well as several hundred long-range missiles, with the medium-range missiles capable of reaching Tel Aviv.

The statement was a rare confirmation of Israel's airstrikes in Syria, where Israel has struck dozens of weapons shipments to Hezbollah, a Lebanese group linked to Iran that fights alongside the Syrian army.

Russia's summons of the Israeli ambassador comes within days of a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Moscow where they said they discussed the Syrian conflict.

His comments came hours after Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman threatened to destroy Syrian air defense systems for targeting the Israeli aircraft during the bombing run Friday.

Ambassador Gary Koren was called in by Russia's Foreign Ministry on Friday after news about the strike emerged, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told the media on Monday, confirming earlier media reports.

Russian involvement in Syria has complicated Israel's actions.
