BBC: Israel: Hezbollah commander Mustafa Badreddine 'killed by own men'

The Israeli military's chief of staff has added weight to Arab media reports that Hezbollah was behind the killing of its own commander in Syria in 2016.

Lt Gen Gadi Eisenkot said Israeli intelligence had similarly concluded that Mustafa Amine Badreddine was assassinated by his own men.

But Jabber told me that the casualty rate amnong the Hezbo was not significant.
