Kuntar, the longest-serving Lebanese prisoner in Israel, was killed Saturday night in what is believed to be an Israeli airstrike on a residential building in the Damascus suburb of Jaramana.Kuntar had met his wife in 2009, a year after he was released from Israeli prisons.Kuntar was released by Israel in 2008 as part of a prisoner swap with Hezbollah, following Israel's 2006 summer war against Lebanon. Hezbollah said in a statement that Kuntar was killed along with a number of Syrian citizens in the Israeli raid, without giving details. Kuntar was imprisoned in 1979 at the age of 16 in Israel and sentenced to three life terms after he and three other Lebanese entered Israel with the aim of kidnapping a nuclear scientist.
