The grandson of a Hizbullah arch-terrorist who died in a mysterious
explosion four years ago, wants to be just like his grandfather.
The Al-Manar television network, which is run by the Lebanese
terrorist organization, hosted this week in studio the family of Imad
Mughniyeh. In a clip from the show, which was presented on the
website of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI),
Mughniyeh’s grandson is shown.
The boy, who was named after his grandfather, is seen in the clip
wearing military fatigues. The host is seen asking him what he wants
to be when he grows up, to which he responds, “I will be in the
resistance. Like grandpa.”
The adults who are sitting next to the boy are then shown handing him
a gun that belonged to his grandfather. As the child is holding the
gun, the host says that Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah has said
that the senior Mughniyeh “left behind thousands upon thousands of
Imad Mughniyeh, who was nicknamed the Hizbullah’s “chief of staff”,
was killed in a car-bomb attack in Damascus in February of 2008,
reportedly while in the midst of planning major terrorist attacks in
moderate Arab countries.
