A Hezbollah official says an Israeli strike in the Syrian Golan Heights killed Jihad Mughniyeh, the son of a slain top military commander, and four other fighters from the Lebanese Shiite militant group.

The official said the Sunday strike targeted two Hezbollah vehicles as fighters were inspecting positions in the area of Mazaare al-Amal in the mountainous plateau close to the Israeli-controlled frontier.
