Hezbollah said Saturday that "Takfiri groups" were responsible for the attack that killed its top military commander Mustafa Badreddine in Damascus.Thousands of Hezbollah supporters waved the party's yellow flag and clad in black participated in Badreddine's funeral in the southern Beirut suburb of Ghobeiri, where Hezbollah has wide support.Reflecting on the life of Badreddine, Hezbollah's deputy head Sheikh Naim Qassem said "Israel and the takfiris suffered heavy blows" as a result of the Hezbollah commander's actions. He vowed that Hezbollah would continue down Badreddine's "path". Badreddine, 55, is the most senior Hezbollah official killed since 2008 when his brother-in-law, long-serving military commander Imad Mughniyeh, was blown up by a bomb planted in his car in Damascus that Hezbollah blamed on Israel.Badreddine was one of the founders of Hezbollah in 1982 and had assumed a leading role in the military wing after the killing of Imad Mughniyeh.
