Seven Army Martyrs Escorted to Final Resting Place 

Mar 21, 2012

DAMASCUS/ SWEIDA, (SANA)- With laurel wreaths, and to the music of "the Martyr" and "the Farewell", the bodies of 7 army martyrs on Wednesday were escorted from Tishreen Military Hospital and the National Hospital of Sweida to their final resting place.

The martyrs, who were targeted while in the line of duty by armed terrorist groups in Daraa, Homs and Damascus Countryside, are:

Colonel Alaa Mahmoud Watfa, from Lattakia.

Captain Abdul-Karim Younes Zeina, from Homs.

Chief Warrant Officer Haitham Sleiman Gharz-Eddin, from Sweida.

Serfeant Major Abdul-Hakim Adnan Mohammad al-Obeid, from Raqqa.

Conscript Mohammad Nouh Ka'karni, from Damascus.

Conscript Ahmad Mohammad al-Khalifa, from Deir Ezzor.

Conscript Ali Jasem Issa, from Damascus Countryside.


The martyrs' families strongly condemned the organized crimes perpetrated by the armed terrorist groups backed by some Arab and Western countries.

They called for confronting the terrorists and restoring security to Syria, stressing confidence in the Syrian people's ability to overcome the crisis through adherence to national unity.


"My husband sacrificed his soul for the defense of our dear homeland," said Muntaha Makarem, wife of martyr Haitham, calling for hitting the terrorist groups with an iron fist.

"All those whose hands were stained with the Syrian blood and those who were involved in the shedding of this blood will be held to account by the Syrian people," said Ahmad, brother of martyr Alaa Watfa.
