Sayyed Nasrallah to Speak in Commemoration of Martyr Kuntar
Hezbollah Secretary General is to deliver a speech on Sunday during the one-week anniversary of martyr Samir Kuntar who was killed by an Israeli airstrike in the Syrian city of Jaramana last Saturday.
Hezbollah’s Media Relation said that Sayyed Nasrallah will speak during a ceremony marking one week after the martyrdom of Kuntar, the Dean of liberated detainees from Israeli prisons.
The ceremony will take place in Shahed hall, in Beirut’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh), at 2:30 p.m. (local time).
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.
Following Kuntar’s martytrdom, Sayyed Nasrallah delivered a speech on Monday night, praising the martyr as one of Hezbollah members, vowing that the resistance will appropriately respond to his killing.
