He said that Quntar was a senior resistance commander who was set free after resisting for 30 years in Zionist regime’s prisons proudly and with high morale, adding, “He immediately started defending the axis of resistance in Syria after his release with political and religious insight; he was eventually martyred by the Zionist regime in the town of Jermana in the Southern outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus, reports IRNA.
