Israel Will Release Two Syrian Prisoners In “Good Will Gesture” Following Return of Israeli Soldier's Body

Zachary Baumel

Israel will release two Syrian prisoners as a “good will gesture” after the recovery of the body of missing Israel soldier, Zachary Baumel, an Israeli official announced on April 27, according to the Times of Israel.

The official said that the decision to release the Syrian prisoners was taken few days ago without the cabinet approval. However, the decision bypassed the Israeli laws with the consent of Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.

Israel recovered the remains of Zachary Baumel, a U.S.-born Israeli soldier missing since a 1982 tank battle against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), earlier this month. Russian and Syrian forces played a key role in the recovery of the remains, according to President Vladimir Putin.

The Israeli official’s announcement confirmed a recent statement by Russian President’s Special Envoy to Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, in which he said that Israel will soon release Syrian prisoners.

“This was an act of interest for the Syrian side. We will not do anything that is contrary to Syria’s interests, but only things that serve them,” Lavrentiev said explaining the importance of the prisoners release during an interview with RT on April 26.

The identities of the two Syrian prisoners who will be released from Israeli jails is yet to be revealed. However, Israeli media claim that they are Syrian Druze from the occupied al-Golan Heights, who were jailed because of their cooperation with the Damascus government.

The only good will arabs want from Israel is for them to go back to Europe and Russia.

But Khazar origins in from northern-Turkey. That is where their origin comes from.

I honestly dont care where they go as long as they leave Palestine and arab land.

“Good will” towards any gentile is just simply an impossibility for jews. They work for the benefit of the synagogue of satan and nothing and no one else.

Saddam Hussein

True. They view us goyim as lesser beings. Just a hair above animals, created to serve jews.


Assad negotiated with Rebels like how netanyahu negotiates with Assad (He offered 10s of prisoners for a few dead soldiers).

This just goes to show for who the jews are along the jewish spectrum (the least of which are Rebels).


Hmm, the Russians and Israelis get along better than the Syrians and Iranians…….

That’s why your BFs leave you, what about it?

That’s sarcasm, mute.

Lena Jones

Delusional AND illiterate.

Valerianus Maximus

He’s suffering from intense concussive brain damage after his tank vomited him into a mine field and PTSD from having been drafted into the US Army’s cyber warrior brigade. He gets picked on a lot because he’s such a bad cyber-information warrior, so his self-esteem wilts.


“Good Will Gesture”?? Stop lying. This is a DEAL brokered by Russia. Remains of dead IDF soldier for release of two political prisoners. No good will gesture. Good will gesture is if you don’t get anything in return.
