The Lebanese group Hezbollah said on Friday it would announce within hours the outcome of its investigation into a blast that killed one of its top commanders in Syria.
Hezbollah deputy leader Sheikh Naim Qassem said the result of the investigation into Mustafa Badreddine's killing would be announced no later than Saturday morning.
"We will announce in detail the cause of the explosion and the party responsible for it," he said, adding that there were clear indications of who was behind the attack and the method used.
Speaking at Badreddine's funeral, he also vowed that the group would continue on the "path" of Badreddine, the most senior Hezbollah commander killed since 2008.
