CAIRO, Oct 16 (Reuters) – Syria accused Israeli forces on Saturday of capturing useless Medhat Al-Saleh, a former member of Syrian parliament who had spent 12 years in jail in Israel, state-run tv Al-Ekhbariya quoted the cupboard as saying.
Syrian state news company SANA mentioned Al-Saleh “was martyred as the Israeli enemy targeted him with fire while returning home” on Saturday in Ain al-Tineh, a village inside Syria that’s close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
The Syrian authorities denounced “this cowardly criminal act”.
An Israeli navy spokesperson mentioned the navy doesn’t touch upon international studies.
The authorities mentioned Saleh had spent 12 years in jail in Israel after being jailed in 1985 on prices of “resistance” to Israeli authorities. He later served within the Syrian parliament.
