QUNEITRA, (ST)–Following five years of arbitrary detention, the Israeli occupation authorities on Monday freed Syrian captive, Dr. Iyad al-Jawhari, one of the locals of Majdal Shams town in the occupied Syrian Golan.
"Resistance against the Israeli occupation is legitimate and national. It is a state of awareness about defending the homeland which is currently confronting a global terrorist war led by western and Israeli Mossad's intelligence rooms aiming to undermine resistant thinking," al-Jawhari told SANA.
He said "resistance of the people of occupied Syrian Golan carries on the heroic deeds and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab army, which has been fighting terrorist organizations for years, and reiterates that the occupied Golan is an integral part of Syria."
The released captive stressed his confidence in the Syria's victory against terrorism and its supporters soon, noting that the entire Golan will be liberated and restored to Syria.
The Israeli occupation authorities arrested al-Jawhari in June, 2012 after he returned to the occupied Golan from Syria through Quneitra’s crossing point. He was sentenced to 6 years in Israeli jails for his resistant stances.
