The Lebanese Hezbollah militant party announced Friday the death of Badreddine in a bombing in Damascus.

In a statement issued by its media department, the party did not disclose the nature of the bombing.

“Information received during a preliminary investigation shows that a large explosion targeting one of our posts near Damascus international airport killed Mustapha Badreddine and injured others,” said the statement.

Hezbollah said that Badreddine was in Syria where he was “waging jihad against takfiri groups.”

“The party will reveal more details on his death at a later stage,” said the statement, adding that Badreddine’s funeral will be held on Friday. Enditem
