Hezbollah commander wanted by FBI killed in Syria

Published: 05.28.14, 17:33 / Israel News

BEIRUT - A Hezbollah military commander wanted by the FBI has been killed in Syria while fighting alongside President Bashar Assad's forces against rebels trying to overthrow him, security officials in Lebanon said Wednesday.


The Hezbollah commander, Fawzi Ayoub, was killed in combat in Syria last week. A Twitter account by a pro-Hezbollah media arm known as Mouqawama also confirmed Ayoub's death Wednesday, posting a picture of him performing Islamic prayers, dressed in a military uniform.


Ayoub, also known as Abu Abbas, was a dual Lebanese and Canadian citizen. He was wanted on charges of attempting to use a forged US passport to enter Israel. (AP)
