May he rest in pieces: Hezbollah confirmed that arch-terrorist Samir Kuntar was killed in an air strike on a Damascus apartment building this morning.

Four Israelis were killed in 1979 when Kuntar and three other terrorists infiltrated from Lebanon; during the attack, Kuntar killed four-year-old Einat Haran by smashing her head on a rock.

Israel freed Kuntar and four other Hezbollah operatives in a 2008 prisoner swap for the bodies of Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser. Since then, Kuntar had been accused of inciting Golan Druze violence and reportedly helping Iran build up terror infrastructure in the Syrian Golan. The families of Kuntar’s victims praised the air strike, saying justice was done.

If Israel deliberately killed Qantar, it would have been to foil a current threat, not to avenge his lethal 1979 raid – @JackyHugi @GLZRadio

For now, I’m giving the last word to Smadar Haran Kaiser, who lost her husband and daughter. She described the attack in a gripping first-person account in the Washington Post in 2003.
