Who is he?

On the 17th of May 1967, Haj Mohammad Ali Ghandour celebrated the arrival of his new born baby Salah, who grew up in the Lebanese Southern village of Kafar Milki until h e was 5 years old.
He then moved to the United Arab Emirates with his father where he spent several years. Finishing his elementary and intermediate academic years there, he proved to be intelligent. He would spend a lot of his time in reading and research.
In 1948, the Ghandour family returned to Lebanon in light of the "Israeli" occupation. Martyr Salah then started attending cultural and religious lectures and discussions; he frequently attended the prayers and ceremonies in the mosque. He spent hours with the resistance fighters since the year 1985 when the resistance emerged. The martyr then moved to Beirut where he got married, and lived there for a while due to work circumstances.

Martyr Salah was well-mannered, he was also very calm. He recited verses of the Holy Quran on daily basis, read his supplications and applied their teachings.

In Battlefield

Soon Salah's friends consecutively joined the fleet of martyrs, as they fought the enemy in the South at the frontlines. He no longer tolerated remaining far from the battle site where he would be able to fight for the cause alongside his friends.

He moved to the Southern city of Bint Jbeil, where he joined the troops of resistance. One year after joining the resistance, in 1986, he demonstrated bravery and sacrifice, and was very competent in executing resistance operations. Salah helped many of his friends prepare for their operations, until his time arrived.

On the 25th of April 1995, martyr Salah bid his family farewell. On that day, he exploded his car in two "Israeli" convoys that were changing shifts, by that killing and injuring all its members.

"Think not of those who are slain in God's way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord"

All work as one in their labor to meet God the Exalted
