BEIRUT: Hezbollah's Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah will deliver a speech at the memorial ceremony for assassinated party commander Hassan Hawlo Lakkis on Friday of this week.

In a statement, Hezbollah's media office said the memorial service will be held in Beirut's southern suburb at Sayyed al-Shuhada Complex at 2:30 p.m.

Hezbollah postponed the memorial ceremony which was scheduled for Sunday in Baalbek because of the snow storm currently lashing Lebanon.

Lakkis was gunned down on Dec. 3 outside his home south of Beirut in St. Therese neighborhood.

Hezbollah blamed Israel for the assassination and said it “should bear full responsibility and all the consequences of this heinous crime and its repeated targeting of our dear resistance leaders and cadres."
