Syrian rebels have frequently accused the Lebanese Hezbollah of supporting Assad's forces battling the 18-month-old uprising, saying Hezbollah fighters have been deployed mainly along the frontier inside Syria.
A statement on Hezbollah's website said "the martyr leader Ali Hussein Nassif (who) died while performing his jihad duties" was buried on Monday in Baalbek, the main town in the northern Bekaa Valley that is a stronghold of the Shi'ite thugs.
Hezbollah gave no details about Nassif's death but sources in Baalbek said he and two other Hezbollah men were killed near a Syrian border town where rebels are fighting Assad's forces. They said the three died when a rocket hit the room where they were staying. They did not say what happened to the bodies of the other two men.
Syrian rebels in the area where Nassif is believed to have been killed have not grabbed credit for any attack on Hezbollah in recent days.
The website of Hezbollah's political foes, known as March 14, said Nassif and a number of other Hezbollah fighters died on Sunday when Syrian rebels ambushed their convoy near al-Qusair.
