Russian Federation to Judge Israel's Implementation of Syrian Agreements by Actions - Lavrov

The Israeli military's chief of staff has said that the assassination of Hezbollah's top military commander in Syria previous year was arranged by rivals within the Shiite militant group.

Israeli Lieutenant-General Gadi Eisenkot told an academic conference on Tuesday that Badreddine's death last May illustrated "the depth of the internal crisis of Hezbollah".

The Shiite movement has said Badreddine was killed by artillery bombardment of one of its positions near Damascus airport. But it also believes the group has been weakened and demoralized after years of fighting alongside President Bashar Assad's forces in Syria.

The same day, Russia's Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador to Moscow, Gary Koren, to demand explanations for the airstrikes Israel conducted near the Syrian city of Palmyra on Friday morning.

In a separate development Tuesday, Israel's Shin Bet security agency said it had arrested a Palestinian employee of a humanitarian program run by the Turkish government on suspicion of diverting funds to militants.
