Ali Muhammad Yunis belonged to Hezbollah's security apparatus, and his job involved tracking those suspected of collaborating with Israel and foreign intelligence agencies.
Hezbollah's announcement does not accuse Israel, or any other foreign government, of responsibility for his death.
His body, which was found in his car Saturday, was covered in gunshot and stab wounds, Lebanese reports said.

Lebanese security sources reported that they arrested a suspect hours after Yunis's body was found. Security forces do not rule out the possibility that the murder may have been politically motivated and unrelated to his role in Hezbollah.
