Lebanese political activist Antoine El Khoury Harb died at dawn on Tuesday from food poisoning.
Lebanese media reported that Khoury Harb died of food poisoning complications and was taken yesterday morning to Tannourine Governmental Hospital in a coma.
El-Khoury Harb, a professor at the Lebanese University, was born in the town of Tannourine in 1966. He was a prominent activist from 1989 in the Free Patriotic Movement (President Michel Aoun's party).
Khoury mourned the war of a number of politicians. The Minister of the Displaced Ghassan Atallah tweeted on Twitter, saying: "Life is really unfair. You are the one who challenged death with your struggle. You suddenly stole death without permission."
The former minister, Wiam Wahab: "Antoine Khoury war goodbye, fighter rebel dreamer."
In turn, the head of the Phalange Party MP Sami Gemayel, Khoury Harb, wrote on Twitter: "After 22 years of struggle, friendship and respect, I lost today a dear friend and a symbol of student resistance."
