Hezbollah operative Hassan Haidar was laid to rest over the weekend after Israel detonated a spy device he was attempting to disable near the town of Adloun in south Lebanon.The funeral procession started in the town of Ansariya Saturday afternoon with the participation of a number of Hezbollah figures, headed by the leader of the Loyalty to the Resistance parliamentary bloc, Mohammad Raad, and mourners from surrounding towns and villages. Adloun is not far from the town of Ansariya where, on the night of Sept. 4, 1997, 12 Israeli commanders were killed after they walked into a Hezbollah ambush while attempting to carry out an operation in the area.
