Israel murdered head of Golan office in Syria

Damascus, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian government on Sunday announced the death of Director of the Golan Affairs Office, Madhat al-Saleh, who was assassinated in Quneitra province, located 67 kms southwest of this capital.

Soldiers of the Israeli army shot al-Saleh from the occupied town of Majdal Shams while he was on his way home in the Ain al-Tineh area, near the border with the occupied Golan, Syrian Tv channel Ikhbariya TV reported.

The presidency of Syria’s Council of Ministers issued a statement in which it strongly condemned this assassination and described it as criminal and cowardly.

These acts of terrorism will fuel the Syrian people’s determination of continuing resisting the enemy until the liberation of the entire occupied Syrian Golan, according to the statement.

Al-Saleh had been arrested by Israel’s occupation forces several times on charges of being a member of the resistance, and was released in 1997 after spending 12 years in Israeli prisons. Then, he moved to the Syrian side.

In May, an Apache helicopter from the Israeli army fired two missiles against a house in Quneitra province and killed one of the resistance leaders.

The government condemned those actions, deplored the silence of the United States, and ratified the legitimate right to defend Syrian territories’ integrity and sovereignty by all legitimate means.
