Syrian Golan Prisoner Released from Occupation Jails

OCCUPIED SYRIAN GOLAN, (ST) - Sami Emad al-Mar'i, a Golan Captive detained by the Israeli occupation authorities last year for his resisting stances, was released from the Israeli jails following a year of unfair detention.

"Occupation will go no matter how long it will last. All handcuffs will be broken and detention will strengthen our adherence to our homeland  and our Syrian Arab identity despite the incessant Israeli aggressive and brutal practices," al-Mar'i said in a statement to SANA correspondent in occupied Golan upon his release from the "Taslamoun" prison, north to occupied Palestine.

 The people of occupied Golan will celebrate the occasion today by holding a ceremony to welcome the liberated prisoner at the Sultan Pasha a-Atrash  Square in Majdal Shams town.

The Israeli occupation authorities had arrested al-Mar'i for the first time on April 16th, 1998 for "joining the Syrian resistance in occupied Golan". The court unjustly sentenced him to 30 months in prison.
