The mother of martyrs, who has been widely known for her patience and power, died yesterday and would be laid to rest today, Tuesday (October 9) afternoon, near Hajj Radwan’s grave in the Rawdat al-Shahidain cemetery in Beirut’s southern suburb, Dahiyeh.
Hajjeh Amina Salemeh is the mother of late Hezbollah senior commander who was assassinated in February 12, 2008 in a car bomb attack orchestrated by Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad.
Mughniyeh, whose nom de guerre was Radwan, was one of the main founders of Hezbollah in the 1980s. He has been described as “a brilliant military tactician and very elusive”.
Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, often calls Hajj Radwan as the “Commander of the Two Victories,” referring to victories achieved by the Lebanese resistance: liberation of Lebanon’s south in 2000 and July war in 2006.
Hajje Amina Salemeh is not only the mother of Hajj Radwan. She is a mother of two other martyrs Fuad and Jihad Mughniyeh who were martyred among the ranks of Lebanese resistance against Israeli occupation. Salemeh is also the grandmother of Jihad Imad Mughniyeh, son of Hajj Radwan who was martyred during an Israeli raid on Syria’s Quneitra in January 2015.
