BEIRUT: Hezbollah head Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah praised and offered condolences Saturday over the recent death of an Iranian official killed en route from Damascus to Beirut.

“I want to stop for a moment of respect and wish to offer praise over the martyrdom of Hussam Khoshnevis for his great efforts while heading the Iranian Committee for Reconstruction in Lebanon,” Nasrallah said.

“Iran has always supported the resistance in Lebanon, in liberating and supporting Lebanon," he added.

In a statement issued late Wednesday, the Iranian Embassy in Lebanon said Khoshnevis, the head of the Iranian Committee for Reconstruction in Lebanon, was killed at the hands of “armed terrorist groups” while making his way from Damascus to Beirut.
