Parween Khalili, the wife of the founder of the Amal movement and the “unseen” Lebanese cleric, Musa al-Sadr, passed away.
Al-Sadr had arrived in Libya in 1978, to participate in what was known as the “Fateh Revolution of September”, which brought the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi to power in 1969.
At the time, the authorities hosted al-Sadr, at the Beach Hotel in the capital, Tripoli, with his companions, Muhammad Yaqoub and journalist Abbas Badr al-Din, but he was seen for the last time, on August 31, 1978.
At the time, the Libyan authorities claimed that al-Sadr and his two companions had left Tripoli, on a plane, for Italian airlines, on their way to Rome, and the Italian authorities later found the bags of al-Sadr and Sheikh Yaqoub in the Holiday Inn Hotel in Rome.
In a statement, the Supreme Islamic Shiite Council mourned the wife of its founder, Parween Azizullah Khalili, “the sanctuary of the hidden Imam Musa al-Sadr.” The anguish of separation and the pain of suffering.
