BEIRUT: Four additional Hezbollah fighters were killed during battles in Syria this week, Al-Mustaqbal reported Tuesday.

The local daily said Hezbollah announced the deaths of four members identified as Mohammad Ali Lama from Adsheet, Ahmad Ali Jaber from Mayfdoun, Mohammad Hasan Ibrahim from Kfour and Ali Hasan Abboud from Adaysseh.

The four bring the death toll to seven in less than two weeks with three deaths announced last week, including a man wanted by the FBI.

Although there are no official figures on how many resistance fighters have been killed since the party announced it was fighting along regime forces, Hezbollah has repeatedly played down reports of 1,000.
