Two Lebanese Hezbollah mercenaries and a leader in the Lebanese Baath Party were killed fighting alongside Assad terrorists in southern Syria's Daraa, Lebanese media reported on Tuesday (June 13).
Hezbollah-affiliated Arab Press said that two Hezbollah militants, Mohammed Ghazi Younis from the border town of al-Diabia and Ahmad Hassan Obadah from the town of Zita, without specifying the location, time and details of their deaths.
However, field sources confirmed to Orient Net that the two Lebanese militants were killed during the ongoing battles with fighters of al-Bunyan al-Marsous Operations Room (BMOR) – a Free Syrian Army (FSA) operations room which coordinates military action against Assad terrorists in Daraa.
At the same time, the Lebanese Baath Party mourned the death of its leader, Hussein Ali Rabiha, while fighting alongside the Iranian and Hezbollah Shiite militias in the city of Daraa.
The statement added that the Lebanese national was killed on Monday.
Iran has recently sent huge military reinforcements to Daraa and its countryside, consisting of Lebanese, Iraqi, Afghan and Pakistani militias, in conjunction with the recruitment of Maher al-Assad's "fourth division" militants to control the city of Daraa and separate its eastern countryside from its western one.
