Hizbollah commander captured by UK special forces resurfaces in southern Syria, Israeli military says

A senior Hizbollah commander captured by British special forces in Iraq has resurfaced in southern Syria where he is setting up a network to launch attacks against Israel, according to the Israeli military.

Ali Musa Daqduq, a Lebanese Hizbollah operative, conducted a number of bloody operations against Western forces in Iraq in 2006 and 2007, including an attack which killed five US soldiers.

He was captured by the SAS in Basra in March 2007 and spent five years in prison. Iraq’s government released him in 2012 despite strong protests from the Obama White House.
