NETANYA, Israel, May 30 (UPI) -- A Lebanese man who is set to be released by Israel as part of a prisoner exchange deal with Hezbollah says he will engage in terrorism once he is free.

Samir Kuntar, who was imprisoned 29 years ago after he was convicted of killing a family and two police officers in a terrorist attack, said in a letter to Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah he plans to fight with the militant group once he is freed from Hadarim Prison in the Sharon region, Ynetnews reported Friday.

"I give you my promise and oath that my only place will be in the fighting front soaked with the sweat of your giving and with the blood of the shahids (martyrs), the dearest people, and that I will continue your way until we reach a full victory. I send my best wishes and promise of renewed loyalty to you, sir, and to all the jihad fighters," Kuntar wrote.
