PressTV reported that a close source to Hezbollah, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Friday that 19-year-old Kassem Shamkha was killed the previous day as he and fellow fighters were repelling a jihadist militant assault on the western flank of Aleppo.

The late midfielder used to play for al-Ahed Sport Club, which competes in Lebanon’s top soccer division – the Lebanese Premier League. Al-Ahed, which is strongly supported by the Lebanese Shia Muslims and affiliated to Hezbollah movement, has won the Lebanese Premier League crown four times.

“He will go down in history in the club’s records, because he was a hero on the football field just like on the battlefield in defense of the homeland,” al-Ahed Secretary General Mohammad Assi said.

“He was a talented player with huge potential for the club and for Lebanon, but he chose the route of jihad,” he added.

Maybe he would not have died if Russia and SAA were bombing the terrorists instead of letting them organize and attack freely.

I don’t know. But, Russia seems weak and always want to please the west. Russia coordinates with USA, what I don’t understand neither.

Just give Assad S-300 and let him destroy any foreign aircraft to protect his country acting like any real country will do arguing SELF DEFENSE over western invasion.

Russia has weaken his ally instead of making him stronger.

Fortunately, Hezbollah were fighting since the beginning. Hezbollah is a real ally for Syria.

The terrorists want to die. They blow themselfs like cowards for nothing. If they want to die, just kill them. SAA and Hezbollah fighters ans Syrians don’t want to die.

Sad.
““He was a talented player with huge potential for the club and for Lebanon, but he chose the route of jihad,” he added.”
=> Errr, Hizbullah officially abandoned the route of Jihad a few years ago…

For muslims jihad means struggle , both spiritual and in physical form , not necessarily Sunni scum chopping people´s heads . In this case his jihad was physical / external , but he died in jihad but for a good side .
