(Zaman Al Wasl)- Hezbollah’s al-Radhwan forces commander Ali al-Aa'shiq has been killed in a blast in Syrian al-Badiya desert along with fellow commander, the Lebanese militia said on Monday.

The blow come hours  after a U.S. drone bombed Hezbollah bastions in Hamima village east of Homs city, leaving 9 militants killed.

The death of the Lebanese militia has increased in the last four hours to a total of 26 since the Islamic State has launched a counterattack on the regime forces and allied Shiite militias on the road links between Homs and Deir Ezzor.

On Friday, 10 Hezbollah fighters killed by ISIS in Homs desert,  Anadolu agency reported.

The pro-Hezbollah websites, which typically publish the names of Hezbollah casualties in Syria, posted photos of the 10 slain fighters, most of whom reportedly hailed from Lebanon’s eastern Beqaa province. 

Russia-backed Syrian troops have been battling for months to retake the Badiya, which stretches from the country's centre to the Iraqi and Jordanian borders and has been held by IS since 2014.
