Ronny Keren, the brother of Danny Haran - killed with his son and daughter by Samir Kuntar - said Wednesday that he would not oppose releasing Kuntar in exchange for captured reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev. Life is more important than anything," said Keren, adding: "Returning two soldiers home alive was worth everything." Kuntar, the longest-serving confirmed Lebanese prisoner in jail in Israel, is serving multiple life terms for the killing of three members of the Haran family and policeman Eliyahu Shahar in a raid on Nahariya in 1979.
