Hezbollah Military Leader's Son Killed in Israeli Strike, Lebanese Sources Say

The son of late Hezbollah military leader Imad Moughniyah was killed on Sunday when an Israeli helicopter fired missiles at his car in the Syrian province of Quneitra, near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, two sources close to Hezbollah said.

Jihad Moughniyah was killed with four other members of Hezbollah when his convoy was hit, the sources said. His father, who was on the United States’ most wanted list for attacks on Israeli and Western targets, was assassinated in Damascus in 2008.
