The Reverend Father Habeeb Kheshy (1894-1948) was the son of the hieromartyr Nicholas Kheshy and a parish priest of the Archdiocese of Damascus. He was murdered by a group of Muslim smugglers on July 16, 1948, who tortured and then killed him for his Christian faith.

Though he has not yet been canonized by the Church of Antioch, a popular veneration to him exists among the faithful of the Archdioceses of Damascus and Haurun as the New Hieromartyr Habeeb.
