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, who tortured and then killed him for his Christian faith, on July 16, 1948.

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