A Candle in the Dark

A Candle in the Dark

Sara Ibrahim

From the Village of Jibshit came out a man with a firm courageous position, a man that devoted his life for the sake of Jihad, Resistance, Land, Nation, and Islam. He was a man that held the meanings of moral and support and used them to revive people, and a man that always uttered the words of bravery, audacity and perseverance.

That man was assassinated by the filthy hands of the enemy, yet his precious blood did not go in vein. His Martyrdom was a memorable victory, for he was a flame glowing in the path of the Islamic Resistance, and he was the brightest color of dignity and honor.

He is the great leader Sheikh Ragheb Harb, the most eloquent of words, and the most luminous of positions.

A Candle in the Dark

In loving memory of his Martyrdom, Moqawama.org had a special interview with his son Ragheb Harb Junior, who was born 6 months after Sheikh Ragheb’s Martyrdom.

Speaking of Sheikh Ragheb Harb’s character, Ragheb Jr. said his father was a leader; he held the main characteristics of a leader that made him unique in society. “My Father dealt with people as if they were his own family, he was a leader and a loving father to everyone.” he said.

He noted that his father was known for his fidelity for Islam, adding a quote from his father, “There is no better tomorrow without Islam.”

Ragheb continued that his father sacrificed his own self, family, money, time and efforts for the sake of Islam. He tried his best to help people and raise them to be part of a high, educated, knowledgeable Islamic society. “I’m sure my father’s ultimate joy was when he dedicated his blood for the sake of his goal, and that was the noblest thing ever”, Ragheb added.

Being a leader in Hizbullah makes it hard to live a normal life, meaning that at many times, the leader may have to be away for a while. Ragheb Jr. considered he was privileged, for his father’s path despite the sacrifices, was an honor.

He said there is a huge difference between a person sitting at home and caring less about his responsibilities and a person away from home and holding not only his responsibilities but that of a whole Islamic nation. “Even though he was away, my family knew he had a sacred aspiration, and so they were all patient for the sake of his goal”, Ragheb said. “My father hardly came home, especially during the “Israeli” occupation, but mother took his place, and filled in the gaps. She was his Jihad companion.” he added.

As for Ragheb’s personal relationship with his father, he said that even though he didn’t have the chance to meet him in person, he learned from his father through the stories told by his siblings. “While he was at home, father used to play with my siblings, tell them jokes, and he was always concerned about their academic results. Even though he had a lot to do outside yet these things never controlled his thoughts at home. He used to preach in a funny way.” Ragheb added that his father’s basic request was for them to sustain their religion.

Ragheb was influenced by his father psychologically and personally, he said that with no doubt he felt that his father was a blessing sent from God, and that he was affected by his superb and decent characteristics. “His imprints and breath where left everywhere”, he added.

Receiving Sheikh Ragheb’s martyrdom was a shock to the family. Ragheb Jr. said that his father had always sought after martyrdom, but his assassination was a shock to the family. “It was a Friday night, father came back home from the Mosque and sat down for awhile, and afterwards he said he was going to see the neighbors. After a couple of hours, my parents heard people echoing “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar”. They didn’t know what was going on, not until they heard someone saying: “Sheikh Ragheb was killed”, It was the hardest news ever, for it wasn’t familiar yet.” he said.

Sheikh Ragheb had a great influence on Ragheb Jr.’s life. He said: “Father was a source of pride and dignity; he taught me the true meaning of anticipation and perseverance”. He added that his father’s path is with no doubt the right path leading to happiness in this life and the afterlife.”

A Candle in the Dark

Speaking of the imprints of the Martyrs in our lives, Ragheb said that the Martyrs are following the path of Imam Hussein (pbuh), the path of Imam Ali (pbuh), the path of Imam Hassan (pbuh) and Ashura’a. Islam is immortal and continues to grow due to their valuable blood.

Ragheb continued:” All our accomplishments are due to what the blood of the Martyrs reaped throughout history. Our time isn’t any different than the previous times, for the blood of the precious Martyrs, are still pouring on Islam. It is the light of God on earth and God’s light is sealed.” Ragheb said that the imprints of the martyrs are countless; we’ll get to know their value as we grow older.

Ragheb ended by sending a message to his father saying: “Oh Father if you had the chance to ask about this world, you’d ask about Islam, the resistance, the Mujahideen, the oppressed, the land and your sons. As for Islam it is the Light that will never be turned off. As for the resistance, it is the beacon that was fueled by your blood and the blood of all the Martyrs, and its fire will remain so that it burns the bigotry of the enemy.

A Candle in the Dark

As for the Mujahideen, they have never changed their determination and they never will, they will continue this path as it was drawn.

As for the tyrannized; they will remain our first priority until God gives permission for their savior to appear. As for the land it will remain precious and dear with the Jihad, strong with our fists, green with our pouring blood. As for us your children, if God wants, we’ll keep on following your dear path under the banner of Imam Khamenai and Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah until we reach what you reached.”

Um Yasser and Sayyed … A Unique Martyrdom

Um Yasser and Sayyed ... A Unique Martyrdom

Local Editor

It was a dream from the book of the resistance. Almost like a passerby who left behind his basic will for future generations to follow and preserve. The martyred Secretary General of Hizbullah, Sayyed Abbas al-Musawi, stood tall, leaving behind glory, pride, and dignity for history to remember.

He was one of the lights among resistance fighters and fire to its enemies. He consciously acknowledged his responsibilities toward his faith, worldly affairs and country. Palestine is a chapter from Sayyed’s story. But an attempt to count all the luminous points of Sayyed’s life would be a never-ending affair.

His cousin and the brother of his wife, Sayyed Hani al-Musawi, recalls some of these points during an interview with the Al Ahed website.

He was his childhood friend. The friendship got stronger due to the bond of intermarriage. With much nostalgia, Sayyed Hani speaks about the [former] Secretary-General.

“Many things have contributed to making him a great leader. He was bold in his stances, brave in expressing his opinion, and in addition to all that he was adamant in reaching his goals as well as attached to the ultimate goal; Palestine,” said Sayyed Hani.

The loving friend talked about Sayyed’s attachment to “martyr Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr, who loved and appreciated the young man after finding him conscious and thirsty to learn about religion and its provisions, and thirsty for knowledge.”

“After graduating from a Hawza (a religious seminary) in Tyre, Sayyed Abbas moved to Iraq to continue his studies under Sayyed Sadr in accordance with the latter’s wishes. Sayyed Sadr saw in Sayyed Abbas a distinctive character. So he treated him in a special way, getting closer, and opening up all the doors of his knowledge,” Sayyed Hani adds.

He continues by touching on Sayyed Abbas’s visits to Lebanon, throughout that period.

“He used to come on religious occasions like the month of Muharram and Ramadan in order to preach. Back then, knowledge or religious sciences were not widespread among the people. The son of the Bekaa region, who lived through its hardships, had a special place among the people. He was their good example. He contributed to educating the ‘private groups’ that took his place preaching during his absence,” Sayyed Hani explains.

“Sayyed Abbas would return home from time to time to take in the facial features of the people he loved, and desired this to be part of his future, which would be filled with sacrifice and giving and grow to love life,” he continues.

According to Sayyed Hani, his dear friend “was diligent in his work. He did not give in to fatigue easily. As for his car, it was his second home in which he used to sleep during his journeys from the south to the Bekaa Valley or the north or Syria. He was always on the move accompanied by the motto of giving. He devoted his youth for the Palestinian cause. With every minute of his life, he pursued it and raised its banner among the public.”

Sayyed Hani does not forget the leader’s companion on this path; a lady that Sayyed Hani was more closely attached to than his own brothers.

She was the “family darling, good hearted, and the most beautiful girl in form and substance.

And because men of purity are for women of purity, God brought together Siham al- Musawi and Sayyed Abbas. The engagement took place in the presence of a number of scholars. Since that time, Sayyed was never alone in his travels. His cousin, Siham al- Musawi, accompanied him to Iraq. She became Mrs. Um Yasser after their wedding, and she was fourteen years old.”

According to Um Yasser’s brother, the relationship between both martyrs was pure. “I’ve never seen them happier,” Sayyed Hani recalls. He remembers the sacrifices and dedication of his sister with her husband, who was always away. “She used to take his place and assume full responsibility. She was content. He never heard her complain about the harsh conditions or her husband’s risky work. Instead she endowed her life to his jihad to get nearer to God.”

To talk about Um Yasser is a never-ending affair. She was the one that “proved her awareness and competence while in the company of Sayyed. She was the watchful eye and the hand that arranged his affairs. Sayyed reciprocated the respect and appreciated her patience. He was supportive of her, which enabled Um Yasser – despite all the responsibilities – to build the Sayyeda Zahra (AS) Hawza for women as well as the Hawza of Imam Al Montathar for men which Sayyed Abbas al- Musawi founded when he was forced to return from Iraq.”

Both Hawzas [religious schools] had a significant impact on the revival of the pillars of religion in the Bekaa Valley. The city of Baalbek saw the rise of religion and jihad. Which later expanded into several other areas of Lebanon.

“One day I expressed my concern to Sayyed Abbas al-Musawi over the people’s growing despair and the deteriorating situation. Despite my pessimism, he responded with reassuring words and confidence in God saying, ‘the turban and martyrdom will be victorious'” Sayyed Hani added, “He felt that his martyrdom would be an awakening point for the masses. In fact, Sayyed al- Musawi’s martyrdom formed a revolt against injustice.”

The eye of the enemy was watching the [former] Secretary-General of Hizbullah.


“We used to joke with him saying, ‘if you sold yourself to God, do not subject your companions to danger. He would always answer us that he was doing what he must and leaves the rest to God Almighty,” Sayyed Hani said.

The [former] Secretary-General, who was elected to his post in May 1991, was sensitive towards the oppressed and the resistance fighters. After his election, he stressed that this choice “is an obligation and not an honor.”

He was always worried that the position would take him away from feeling the worries of the resistance fighters. Soon Sayyed’s wish and constant intuition that Um Yasser would be his companion in achieving his dream came true. That dream, which he repeated with his melodious voice as he raised his hands to the sky, “I ask you to bless me with a pure martyrdom, I chose for myself in expiation for my sin; a unique martyrdom where my body disintegrates.”

God Almighty heard and answered Sayyed’s call.

Sayyed Nasrallah Calls for Comprehensive Confrontation with The Arrogant Trump Administration: Boycott American Goods

Sayyed Nasrallah Calls for Comprehensive Confrontation with The Arrogant Trump Administration: Boycott American Goods

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Sunday a speech in which he tackled various regional and internal topics.

Addressing tens of thousands of Resistance lovers commemorating Hezbollah Martyr Leaders and 40 days on the martyrdom of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al Muhandis, Sayyed Nasrallah congratulated the Iranian people on the 41 anniversary of the Islamic Revolution. “The revolution in Iran has remained strong despite all wars and sieges, thanks to the presence of its people in all fields and all stages.”

His Eminence further recalled that “The enemy was betting on the collapse of the regime in Iran.”

Congratulating the oppressed Bahraini people on the ninth anniversary of the revolution, led by loyal scholars, particularly Sheikh Isa Qassem; His Eminence highlighted that “The Bahraini people are fighting today to restore Bahrain to its natural position in the nation, after its rulers has turned it into a base for normalization and conspiracy on the Palestinian cause.”

“The martyrs Soleimani, Al-Muhandis, Sayyed Abbas al-Moussawi, Sheikh Ragheb Harb and Hajj Imad Mughniyeh shared common features. They had faith, loyalty and honesty and they were loved by the people. One of the main traits of the martyr leaders is that they were responsible, along with the constant willingness to sacrifice without limits,” he added.

Urging people to read Martyr Soleimani’s will, Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that “When we read the will of martyr Soleimani, we find that we are in front of a knowledgeable Mujahid commander who was concerned for his country and people.”

“The resistance is neither based on speeches nor on words that are disconnected from reality. These leaders embodied it on the ground,” His Eminence stated, noting that “With the martyrdom of each of our leaders, we move from one phase into another and this is the case with the martyrdom of Hajj Qassem”

On this level, the Resistance Leader confirmed that “[US President Donald] Trump’s administration recently committed two horrible crimes resembled by the uncovered assassination of Martyrs Soleimani and Al-Muhandis as well as announcing the so-called ‘Deal of the Century’.”

“Trump’s unilateral ‘Deal of century’ isn’t a deal but an “Israeli” scheme to end the Palestinian cause,” he said, pointing out that “The two crimes are in the service of American and “Israeli” hegemony, tyranny, and looting to our goods and sanctities.”

Sayyed Nasrallah further mentioned that “The US isn’t an inevitable destiny, and the American administrations have always presented schemes, but they have failed because the peoples and states decided to confront them.”

Describing the ‘Deal of Century’ as a crime committed in the White House, His Eminence hailed the fact that “There is no Palestinian group or faction that accepts to give up the Palestinian cause and Al-Quds.”

“Today, no one supports Trump’s ‘Deal of Century’. No influencing country has shown any approval of this scheme,” he clarified, lauding the Lebanese unity and solidarity in rejecting Trump’s scheme as they [the Lebanese] are aware of its danger.”

As His Eminence warned that Trump’s scheme hands the occupied Lebanese territories to “Israel” in addition to settling the refugees, Sayyed Nasrallah wondered “Who guarantees that these stances will remain the same in the future, especially if the Gulf stance changes.”

“There are Gulf countries that say that Trump’s scheme is capable of being studied, and this is how defeat and surrender begin,” he stated, pointing out that “The positions that followed Trump’s announcement of his ‘Deal of century’ were full of strong rejection.”

On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah viewed that “The new stage requires from our people in the region to go and not to escape the primary confrontation.”

“When Trump kills our leaders in a public and brutal manner, he declares war and we are still in the stage of slow response,” His Eminence declared, calling the peoples in the region to move to the main confrontation, which is inevitable, as the other party is on the offensive.

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “Our people are urged to go to the confrontation with the arrogance symbol resembled by Trump’s administration. Awareness away from fear of America and confidence in our ability are a must as the US is responsible for all “Israel’s” wars and practices.”

“We are not taking anyone into a confrontation with America,” he added, pointing out that “America has imposed a confrontation on the nation.”

Sayyed Nasrallah went on to explain that “We need a comprehensive confrontation with this brutal authoritarian monster, resembled by Trump’s arrogant administration. Daesh [Arabic Acronym for the terrorist “ISIS/ISIL” group] has taken control of provinces in Syria and Iraq, committed massacres, and the Americans are responsible for these atrocities.”

Stressing that “Boycotting US goods is painful for the Americans,” Hezbollah Secretary General wondered “Why don’t we resort to this choice?”Sayyed Nasrallah: I call on all the elites, scholars and thinkers to set programs and plans as part of a major confrontation with the American administration

“In order to impose its hegemony and plans, The US uses all available means, including proxy wars and assassinations,” he underlined, stating that “All forms of resistance are required: the legal, judicial, economic, and other levels.”

According to His Eminence, His Eminence cautioned that “The US is using the weapon of economic sanctions against people. The US supports the ongoing war against the Yemeni people to benefit economically from selling weapons to the countries of the aggression.”

In response, Sayyed Nasrallah declared that “All the peoples of the region will carry the weapons in face of the US arrogance, and America left no choice to us.”

To the Iraqi people, Sayyed Nasrallah sent a message of love and advice: “The beloved Iraqi people know Hajj Abu Mahd Al-Muhandis, who spent his life in jihad leaving his home, family and children. Abu Mahdi fought in all Iraqi provinces and carried his blood on his palm and shroud on his shoulder. The primary responsibility of the Iraqi people is preserving the Popular Mobilization Forces as well as strengthening it and its spirituality.”

On the same level, His Eminence confirmed that “Martyr Soleimani was interested in seeing the dear Iraq as capable, independent and present in the issues of the region, not isolated.”

“I tell the dear, loyal and aggrieved Iraqi people that the first responsibility for responding to the assassination of Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qasem Soleimani falls on their shoulders,” He confirmed.

Regarding the current Lebanese internal situation, he cautioned that “We have a clear financial and economic crisis in Lebanon, and there is concern that this crisis will affect the security situation in Lebanon.”

Sayyed Nasrallah warned that “There is concern for the state’s health, social and development services, which will be negatively affected.”

Reiterating that “We, in Hezbollah do not fear for the future of the resistance and its men,” Hezbollah Secretary General stressed that “Our concern is for Lebanon and the Lebanese.”

“Hezbollah will not escape the responsibility,” he said, announcing that “We, in Hezbollah, do not think in a partisan way and think for ourselves. Rather, we are concerned for the people in all Lebanese regions.”

In addition, His Eminence underlined that “The financial and economic situation needs to be addressed, and we are ready to take and share the responsibility for solving the crisis.”

“We lost our dignity because we did not compliment so that we prevent the country from going into chaos and civil war,” Sayyed Nasrallah explained, warning that “We are facing a very difficult economic situation, and there is no discussion about that, but the discussion is about bankruptcy or not.”

Urging all Lebanese sides to separate the financial and economic file from the political conflict in the country and to leaving aside settling of scores, His Eminence viewed that “Naming the government as “Hezbollah’s government” harms Lebanon’s Arab and international ties.”

To the Lebanese, he said: “Help the government, because should it manage to stop the collapse, it would be offering a great service to all Lebanese and those who live in Lebanon.”

Sayyed Nasrallah: Trump’s Two Recent Crimes Usher Direct Confrontation with Resistance Forces

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed Sunday that the United States of America has recently committed two major crimes, the assassination of the head of IRGC’s Al-Quds Force general Qasem Suleimani as well as the deputy chief of Iraq’s Hashd Shaabi Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and the announcement of Trump’s Mideast plan.

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that those two crimes had ushered a direct confrontation with the axis of resistance in Lebanon, calling for forming a comprehensive (political, economical, cultural and legal) resistance front,  against the United States all over the world.

The military choice will never be abandoned, according to the Resistance Leader who pointed out that the US tyrant has not left for the regional peoples except holding guns to fight it.

Delivering a speech during Hezbollah’s “Martyrdom & Insight” Ceremony which marks the anniversary of the martyrs Sheikh Ragheb Harb, Sayyed Abbas Al-Moussawi and Hajj Imad Mughniyeh and the 40th day after the martyrdom of General Suleimani and Hajj Al-Muhandis, Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that in this confrontation with the United States, we have to trust God’s help, keep hopeful for a bright future and challenge our fear.

Sayyed Nasrallah considered that the confrontation between the United States and the forces which reject to surrender to its will is inevitable, adding that Washington is who has led the region to this conflict, not the resistance.

All the regional peoples must be prepared for the key confrontation, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that Trump’s administration is the most arrogant, unjust, Satanic and corrupt in the US history.

Sayyed Nasrallah held the United States responsible for all the Zionist crimes against the Arab people “because it provides the occupation entity”, adding that Washington supports and protects the Saudi-led war on Yemen in order to sell arms for the coalition forces.

“US is responsible for the ISIL’s atrocities in Iraq and Syria. Thank God, the terrorist group was confronted and blocked on Lebanon’s border.”

Sayyed Nasrallah clarified that the US may resort to direct or proxy wars, assassinations, sanctions, and financial as well as legal pressures in order to carry out its schemes, adding that “we have to employ the same means in the comprehensive resistance across the Arab and Islamic World.”

Hezbollah Chief suggested boycotting all the US goods or at least the products of some (e.g. Trump’s) firms, adding that the US point of weakness is its economy.

“The Israeli enemy has a major weakness which is the human losses; similarly, the Americans have their economic and financial situation as a point of fragility.  Hezbollah hit the Israeli enemy at its weakness, so, likewise, we can concentrate on the US economic interests.”

Sayyed Nasrallah called on the elites, scholars, companies and governments in the region to get involved in this comprehensive confrontation with the United States, suggesting that lawyers file lawsuits against the US officials accused of committing crimes.

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the so-called “deal of the century” cannot be described as a ‘deal’ because it refers merely to the plan of the US president Donald Trump’s plan to eradicate the Palestinian cause.

All the Palestinian forces have rejected and may never approve Trump’s scheme, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who considered that this is basic in frustrating the US plan.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that consistency of stances which reject Trump’s plan is required to frustrate it, adding that the US will is not an inevitable destiny and citing previous cases of Washington’s failure when opposed by resistance.

No one approved the US plan except Trump and Netanyahu, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who underscored the Palestinian, Arab and international rejection of the scheme.

Hezbollah leader hailed the consensus of the Lebanese political parties which have rejected Trump’s plan, attributing this attitude to the recognition of the dangers of the scheme to Lebanon and the entire region.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that Trump’s Lebanon affects Lebanon because it grants the occupied Shebaa Farms, Kfar Shuba hills and the Lebanese part of Al-Ghajar town to the Zionist entity, stipulates naturalizing the Palestinian refugees and impacts the border demarcation.

“The spirit of Trump’s plan will be decisive in the issue of demarcating the land and sea borders with occupied Palestine and will affect Lebanon’s oil wealth.”

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that what reassures the Lebanese about the rejection of the naturalization of the Palestinian refugees is the consensual attitude of all the parties in this regard and the prelude of the Constitution, calling for respecting certain groups’ fears related to this issue.

We should not be outraged by the fears and concerns of some Lebanese parties about the naturalization, the farms and hills, and oil resources, according to Hezbollah Chief who also asked about the guarantees for the consistency of the stances which reject Trump’s deal.

“Who can guarantee that the attitude of certain Lebanese parties may not change in favor of Trump’s plan, especially if their approval gets linked to financial aids to Lebanon which is facing a serious economic crisis?”

“Trump plan does not guarantee Palestinian refugees the right of return to their homeland, instead calling for them to be granted citizenship in the states they currently reside in.”

Sayyed Nasrallah considered that the Arab attitude towards Trump’s plan is excellent, adding but some said that it can be studied being the only choice.

“This is how surrender begins. It is scary that some Arab, especially Gulf, regimes may individually approve Trump’s deal.”

“It’s right to say that Trump’s deal was born dead, but it’s also right to say that Trump insists on implementing it.”

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah fraternally addressed the Iraqi people, calling on them to respond to the US crime of assassinating the two martyrs Hajj Al-Muhandis and General Suleimani, preserve the Popular Mobilization (Hashd Shaabi) in spite of the US scheme to eradicate it, expel the US forces of Iraq, and strengthen the Iraqi role in the region.

Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech with felicitations on the birthday of Sayyeda Fatima Al-Zahraa (P), the daughter of Prophet Muammad (PBUH).

Hezbollah leader also congratulated Imam Khamenei and all Iranians on the 41st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution’s victory, adding that Iran has remained strong and will never stop supporting the oppressed people all over the world and recalling the enemy’s bets on the collapse of the Islamic regime.

Sayyed Nasrallah further felicitated the Bahraini people, led by Sheikh Issa Qassem, on the ninth anniversary of their peaceful revolution which seeks democracy and freedom

Sayyed Nasralah highlighted the sacrifices made by the Bahrainis (martyrs, wounded and arrestees) against the unjust regime, “which turned Bahrain to a treachery platform conspiring against the Palestinian cause and normalizing ties with the Zionist entity.”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the martyrs General Qasem Suleimani, Hajj Abu Mahdi Al-Muhanidis,  Al-Muhandis, Sayyed Abbas al-Moussawi, Sheikh Ragheb Harb and Hajj Imad Mughniyeh had faith, loyalty and honesty as common traits, adding that they assumed responsibility and showed willingness to make limitless sacrifices.

Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted that the resistance is not a matter of speeches separate from the reality, calling for reading the will of martyr Suleimani who used to assume the responsibility of his people and Umma.

It is worth noting that the ceremony started with a blessed recitation of Holy Quranic verses before Lebanon’s and Hezbollah’s anthems were played.

February 16 is the martyrdom anniversary of Hezbollah’s Leaders, Sheikh Ragheb Harb, Sayyed Abbas Al-Mousawi and Hajj Imad Mughniyeh, all were assassinated by the Zionist enemy throughout different years of confrontation, but in the same week.

Sheikh Ragheb Harb was assassinated by an Israeli agent on February 16, 1984.

Late Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Abbas al-Mousawi was martyred, along with his wife and son, when an Israeli airstrike attacked his convoy as he was attending the commemoration anniversary of Sheikh Harb on February 16, 1992.

Later on February 12, 2008, Hezbollah’s top military commander Hajj Imad Moghniyeh was martyred in a car bomb attack carried out by Israeli Mossad agents.

On January 3, 2020, a US drone attack targeted a vehicular convoy for the head of the IRGC Al-Quds Force General Qassem Suleimani and the deputy chief of Hasd Shaabi Committee Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, claiming both of them in addition to a number of their companions.
