Hezbollah issued a statement saying, "Jibril’s life was full of resistance, struggle (or jihad, as it is called), redemption, and sacrifice on the road to Palestine," adding, "He spent his life moving between battlefields and battlegrounds, believing in the continuous struggle as the only path to liberation, being steadfast on righteousness - unwavering and unmoving - believing in the unity of all resistance fighters and Jihadis on all fronts, characterized with fierce determination, high morale, and heroic bravery - [these are all] sublime characteristics that put him in his rightful place in the history of Palestine and the region."

Hezbollah considered that "The Palestinian people have lost a high stature of honor and redemption. We hope that our nation and our Palestinian people follow through his footsteps on the path of liberation, resistance, and victory."

This afternoon, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command announced the death of its Secretary-General, Ahmad "Abu Jihad" Jibril, who passed away Wednesday in a hospital in the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Ahmed Jibril, a Palestinian leader born in 1938, founded the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command, because of his belief in the "armed struggle to liberate Palestine."
