Fayad, originally from Ansar village of southern Lebanon, was considered one of the key military commanders of Hezbollah.


Hezbollah has recovered the body for one of its senior commanders, Ali Fayyad, after earlier reports said he was killed in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo, Al Arabiya News Channel reported Monday.

Reports of Fayad’s death first surfaced on Feb. 26 when Syrian activists said he was killed in Aleppo.

Fayad, originally from the village of Ansar in southern Lebanon, was considered one of the key military commanders in Hezbollah.

Hezbollah has been quiet on the number of its fighters killed in Lebanon over the course of the Syrian conflict, but a Washington Institute for Near East Studies puts the number close to 865 members killed in the past four years.
