BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:05 A.M.) – Major General Issam Zahreddine was honored in his ancestral home of Al-Sweida, today, in front of a large crowd of soldiers and civilians at the provincial stadium.

The funeral procession commemorated General Zahreddine and his military achievements that dated as far back as two decades ago.
