Hizbullah Report: Airman Ron Arad Died Trying to Escape During 1988 Israeli Raid

More heartache for the Arad family, may HaShem comfort them. The pathetic global observers of the drama, tragedy and catastrophe in the middle east only weep for thieving Arabs, yet the most grievous of victims are Israelis, for whom noone in the global community cries. May HaShem comfort the Arad family and may HaShem avenge the murder of Ron Arad and impart punishment upon all those who weep for Arad's murderers. From Hizbullah Report: Airman Ron Arad Died Trying to Escape During 1988 Israeli Raid:

After 22 years, two photographs of missing Israel Air Force airman Ron Arad, as well as three letters written by him and fragments of a diary, were given to his wife Tami on Sunday. The personal material was part of an 80-page report by Hizbullah detailing the group's search for Arad, who was shot down over Lebanon and captured alive in 1986. The report, which did not solve the mystery of what happened to Arad, represents the first stage of a planned prisoner swap with Hizbullah. The Hizbullah report is merely an updated version of a report it passed to Israel in 2004, defense officials said on Sunday. The conclusion remains the same as the 2004 report, that Arad had tried to escape when his guards went to fight during Israel's Maydun operation on May 4, 1988, and probably died.
