Following are excerpts from an announcement posted on the Internet and an Al-Manar TV report on the burial of Hizbullah fighters killed in Syria, which aired on October 2, 2012.
Farouq Brigades member: Upon the order of the general commander of the Farouq Brigades, the Baraa Brigade in the city of Qusseir attacked a roadblock on the international highway between Qusseir and Baalbek. This roadblock was manned by members of Hizbullah.
The roadblock was besieged for eight days. The roadblock's commander, Captain Rami Al-Ali, was killed, along with 15 of the shabiha. In addition, Lieutenant Bassel Shaaban was wounded, and three Hizbullah members, clad in black, were killed.
As a result, the regime went berserk, and sent reinforcements to salvage the bodies of the Hizbullah men, so that we would not have proof of their presence. The reinforcements were led by Ali Hussein Nassif, a.k.a. Abu Al-Abbas, one of the top Hizbullah commanders in Syria.
When they were leaving the roadblock, the Baraa Brigade planted a mine on the highway, killing the Hizbullah commander, Abu Al-Abbas.
