Immad Mughniyeh Assassination Details


According to Lebanese paper Al-Ahbar The Mossad assassinated Hizbullah senior operations officer Immad Mughniyeh in 2008.

According to the report, Mughniyeh attended a Hizbullah coordination meeting in the Lebanese village of al-Sousah, which he left at 22: 15 on February 12th. The Mossad hired a Syrian citizen to buy a Mitsubishi Pajero SUV and packed the trunk with a high-impact explosive device loaded with metal fragments for maximum damage. The Mossad team observed unnoticed from a Mitsubishi Lancer parked nearby. Mughniyeh entered his car as the Pajero pulled up at 22:20. The Mossad detonated the bomb, terminating the target, followed by their swift departure in a different vehicle due to technical malfunction. (Walla!)
