Hezbollah counterespionage commander reportedly assassinated in southern Lebanon

The only thing about which I am highly confident regarding this story is that we may never know what really happened, unless someone (Israel?) decides to leak details through trusted reporters.

The Jerusalem Post reports:

After a Hezbollah commander in charge of pursuing spies and collaborators was found killed in southern Lebanon over the weekend, Lebanese and Iranian media began reporting that the Mossad “and its mercenaries” were suspects in the assassination.
Hezbollah commander Ali Mohammed Younis was killed by unknown assassins in southern Lebanon on Saturday.

The Hezbollah commander was “responsible for pursuing spies and collaborators,” according to unofficial statements, the Iranian Fars news agency reported. The Fars report included an image of a body lying next to an open vehicle.

Hezbollah sources said Younis was found stabbed to death in his vehicle, Lebanese MTV news reported. He was found south of Nabatiya, Sputnik news reported.

But it’s all really murky, as the Post notes:

Al-Quds Al-Araby reported that the statement issued by Hezbollah mourning Younis indicated that his death was connected to his work, adding that the death may have also been due to differences between Younis and another group over financial issues.

The Janoubia news website reported that Younis had been working for a while on a “sensitive file.” Sources told the website that Younis was on a mission pursuing a target when he was ambushed by three vehicles and killed….

Younis was a “close associate” of former IGRC Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani, Sputnik reported.

Preliminary information indicates that a professional party carried out the assassination, the sources told Janoubia. “The information provided by Hezbollah suggests that the assassination of Younis was carried out by the Israeli Mossad and its agents,” reported Janoubia. Fars and Al-Quds Al-Araby quoted Janoubia’s claims in their reports on the incident as well.

What goes around, comes around.

Except when William Barr or Jeff Sessions attorney general.

So was it Ali Mohammed Younis was the ‘leak’ that got IGRC Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani ?

    Good question. As was said above, we’ll never know. But this guy sounds like the type of man, in the type of work, that easily could have had a couple hundred or more people eager to see him dead, for a couple of hundred different reasons. That probably was not a wise career choice.

Someone needs to put his body on a large rotisserie, and when he is well done, feed him to hogs. The resulting hog crap should be gathered and sent to his home.


Back up hit. One in Iraq, now here. Trump has started the deconstruction of the Iranian terror machine, now some other groups are backing up Trump.
Unlike the Sunni, Shia have central authority. And hence the roll up begins. Bush was too stupid to undertake the strategy. Cheney too focused on megawars. No wonder Trump fired most of his national security advisers. They would have warned Iran that hell was coming.

It is nice to see some people aren’t 100% focused on the Chinese flu.

Aww, that’s a shame. Really.

One word:

damn sure looks professional–quick and quiet–stabbed AND

and raises the lingering question ” who is next? “

I’m trying very hard to feel sympathetic.

No success so far.

More air for the rest of us.

Weird beard mullahs next?

Buh-Bye Ali. Give my regards to Qasem when you see him in hell.

Finished “The Spy” last week with Sascha Baron Cohen doing an excellent job playing mid-60’s spy Eli Cohen. The things those Mossad boys and girls get up to.

Obviously he died of natural causes…..his heart stopped beating after someone put a knife into it.

i LOVES mew a story with a happy ending…


and another one bites the dust

Counterintelligence you say? Obviously he was bad at his job…
