Syrian prisoner al-Sha'er released after a year of struggle in Israeli jails
QUNEITRA– The Syrian prisoner Fares al-Sha'er from the occupied Majdal Shams village was released on Tuesday after spending a year of deprivation and oppression in the Israeli jails.
The occupation authorities issued an unfair one-year imprisonment sentence against al-Sha'er after arresting him in August 2011 on charge of resisting the occupation.
In a statement to SANA, al-Sha'er said that he is determined to continue struggle side by side with the people of the occupied Golan who are firmly committed to their Syrian Arab identity and opposed to the occupation's suppressive and terrorist practices.
He expressed pride in the steadfastness of his fellows in the Israeli jails and their challenge against the arbitrary procedures taken by the Zionist jailers against them.
Al-Sha'er greeted the people of Golan and the homeland who have supported the Syrian prisoners, stressing that the occupation will come to an end and liberation will be achieved under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad.
In turn, Governor of Quneitra, Eng. Hussein Arnnous, congratulated al-Sha'er's family for the return of their son, calling upon the international public opinion and the international organizations to put an end to the suffering of the Syrian and Palestinian prisoners and releasing them, on top being Sudqi al-Maqt who is spending his 27th year in the Israeli jails.
Al-Sha'er had previously been arrested for 8 years by the occupation forces for resisting the occupation's terrorist practices against the people of the occupied Golan.
