The Lebanese newspaper Al-Joumhouria has quoted a joint military command of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) when he said that the bodies of 38 Hezbollah fighters that were killed inside Syrian territory have been sent to Lebanon to be secretly buried.

Fahed al-Masri, the head of media for the FSA told the newspaper, “Most of them were killed in the Reef of Homs while four fighters were killed in Damascus."

“The corpses were transferred secretly to Lebanon and arrangements for the burial were being made after buying the silence of the deceased’s relatives,” he explained.

Masri noted that it was difficult to identify 10 of the corpses due to severe burns and other injures.

YaLibnan reports that Hezbollah has in recently buried a number of fighters killed in Syria without publicly disclosing how the men were killed, or where.

This past Sunday, a Hezbollah member that was killed while fighting in Syria was buried in southern Lebanon, according to several residents of the man’s village.

The residents said that the funeral of Hassan Nimr Shartouni, 25, was held in Mays al-Jabal after the arrival of his body from Syria where he was killed in fighting on Saturday.

Residents of Mays al-Jabal also told the Lebanese television station Future TV that 20 of their sons are missing and they don’t know their whereabouts. Resident have reportedly been asking Hezbollah about relatives, but the terrorist outfit has been maintaining silence.
