Ghazi Ali Dawi also known as Danyal or Daniel was a 26-year-old from Khiam town in the South Lebanon Governorate of Southern Lebanon.[1] He was lower-level Hezbollah ground commander in charge of smaller units or geographic zones in the Golan Heights. [2]


In 2015, days after Hassan Nasrallah declared that Israel's air strike aggression in Syria meant that the Syrian Arab Republic and its allies had the right to respond, an Israeli helicopter blew up Ghazi Ali Dawi and five other Hezbollah commanders including Jihad Mughniyah and Mohamad Issa in Quneitra Governorate. They were driving in a convoy in Quneitra Province alongside Revolutionary Guard Council (IRGC) troops near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, and on 18 January 2015 the convoy was destroyed by the Israeli helicopter.[3] [4]
