DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:08 A.M.) – Father of famous Hezbollah leader Imad Mughniya was found dead in his residence earlier today.
Fayez Mughniya likely died of natural causes after living to an old ripe age. His son Imad Mughniya was Hezbollah’s chancellor before an Israeli strike murdered him over a decade ago. He led the Lebanese resistance party in the fierce battles that led to the expulsion of the Israeli forces from southern Lebanon at the turn of the 21st century.
Since Imad’s assassination, Hassan Nasrallah has steered Hezbollah through the tumultuous events that swept through the Middle East.
