Israeli Strike in Syria Kills Dean of Arab Detainees Samir Kuntar

Al-Manar | December 20, 2015

Jaramana4Israeli warplanes raided a residential building in the Syrian city of Jaramana late on Saturday, killing the Dean of liberated detainees from Israeli prisons, Samir Kuntar.

Al-Manar sources said the Israeli warplanes struck the building with four long-range missiles, causing complete destruction of the building and partial damage to the surrounding structures.

Hezbollah Media Relations released a statement on Sunday announcing the martyrdom of Kuntar who spent 29 years in the Israeli prisons.

“At 10:15 p.m. on Saturday December 19, Zionist warplanes struck a residential building in Jaramana city in Damascus countryside,” Hezbollah Media Relations said in the statement.

“The Dean of liberated detainees from Israeli prisons, brother Mujahid Samir Kuntar was martyred along with several Syrian citizens in the strike,” the statement added.

Al-Manar correspondent in Damascus reported that the Takfiri insurgents fighting the Syrian government have been operating in Jaramana, noting that they have been repeatedly coordinating with the Israeli enemy, in a clear indication that the latest strike could be coordinated by the Zionist forces and the terrorists.

Kuntar was detained by occupation forces in 1979, at the age of 16, for his involvement in a heroic operation against Zionists. He was released along with four other Lebanese prisoners in a 2008 swap deal with Hezbollah in exchange for the bodies of two Israeli soldiers killed during the 2006 war.

  1. Goddam Zionist terrorists. I hate them with every breath I take. Viva the Palestinians–people and their land.

    Is it too much to hope that the Syrian government will immediately bring this latest violation of Syrian’s sovereign airspace and murderous war crime resulting in Syrian and martyr Kuntar’s deaths before the UN Security Council?…despite, of course, the certainty that any such protest will fall on the deaf, complicitly evil ears of bitch Samantha Power and other US prostitutes for the Zionist entity.
