Israeli Media: Medhat al-Saleh Was Assassinated by Israeli Snipers
Israeli media say Israeli occupation snipers assassinated Syrian liberated prisoner Medhat al-Saleh while returning to his home in Ain al-Tineh, facing the town of Majdal Shams in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.
Israeli media revealed that liberated prisoner Medhat al-Saleh was martyred on Saturday by the Israeli occupation snipers while returning to his home in Ain al-Tineh, facing the town of Majdal Shams in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.
Or Heller, military affairs commentator for Channel 13, said that al-Saleh was shot by snipers several times.
For his part, Roi Kais, Arab Affairs Correspondent at Kan channel described the operation as an "exceptional liquidation process" in light of al-Saleh's "hostile" activities that he tried to carry out against "Israel."
In his last interview with Al Mayadeen, the martyr affirmed that the Golan Heights is an Arab Syrian land, and the occupation has no right to establish any project on it.
He also stressed that the people of the occupied Golan Heights are determined to confront the occupation's plans, no matter what it takes.
Al-Saleh, from the village of Majdal Shams, was first arrested in 1983 while trying to cross the ceasefire line between Syria and the occupied Syrian Golan Heights. After his release, the occupation re-arrested him for the second time in 1985.
The Israeli occupation re-arrested the martyr for 12 years for establishing resistance groups against "Israel." He was finally released on February 25, 1997.
The liberated prisoner served as the head of the Syrian Golan Affairs in the Syrian government.
