According to rumors circulating in Beirut, Hizballah’s security services Monday night detained Mustafa Mughniyeh, designated in summer as the group’s Golan Front commander, on charges of spying for the CIA and Israeli intelligence. DEBKAfile: The rumor, if confirmed, would represent an earthquake for Iran’s Lebanese proxy.  Mustafa is a son of the iconic Hizballah chief commander, Imad Mughniyeh, who was assassinated in Damascus in 2008. He was given the Golan command in place of his brother, Jihad, who was killed in an Israeli air strike on Jan. 18.
