The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah said Saturday that the explosion in Damascus that killed its top military commander was caused by insurgent shelling and vowed to continue fighting alongside the Syrian government until the rebels are defeated.
Mustafa Amin Badreddine was the highest-ranking Hezbollah militant to be killed since the group joined Syria’s civil war four years ago.
Hezbollah said the blast near the Damascus International Airport was caused by artillery shelling from “takfiri” groups, a term Hezbollah uses to refer to Sunni Muslim extremists.
The area on the southern edge of the Syrian capital is known to host positions of several militant groups, including Al Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the Nusra Front.
