French Journalist: Hezbollah Asked us to Avoid Saying Israel Killed its Military Chief

Mustafa Badreddine

The Jerusalem Post reports: Hezbollah asked western journalists not to report that Israel was behind the assassination of Mustafa Badreddine, Hezbollah’s military chief, a prominent French journalist has alleged.

Georges Malbrunot, the Middle East reporter for the French daily newspaper Le Figaro, wrote a series of comments on his Twitter page on Saturday, regarding the assassination of Hezbollah’s top commander.

“Hezbollah asked the journalists who asked for its reaction to Baddredine’s liquidation to avoid saying that Israel is involved in the attack,” Malbrunot wrote.
