Hezbollah's top commander Mustafa Badreddine has been killed in an attack in Syria, the group said Friday, in a major blow to the organization that has played a key role in defending the regime of President Bashar Assad.Badreddine was sentenced to death in Kuwait for his role in bomb attacks there in 1983 .A U.S. Department of the Treasury statement detailing sanctions against Badreddine last year said he was assessed to be responsible for the group's military operations in Syria since 2011 . The U.S. Treasury statement said Badreddine had accompanied Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah during strategic coordination meetings with Assad in Damascus. For years, Badreddine masterminded military operations against Israel and managed to escape capture by Arab and Western governments by operating clandestinely.
