One of the five Hezbollah members being tried in absentia over the 2005 murder of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was the target behind a Jan. 18 Israeli airstrike in Syria's Golan Heights, the New York Times said Tuesday.According to a report authored by Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman, Hezbollah operative Mustafa Badreddine was supposed to be in the convoy that was targeted in an Israeli airstrike that killed six Hezbollah members and an Iranian general. Hezbollah buried six of its members in the week after the Qunaitra attack, and Iran's Revolutionary Guard acknowledged that one of its commanders was killed.
