A sniper’s bullet has reportedly “taken out” Syrian Army Brig. Gen. Mohammed Suleiman, purportedly a close aide to Syrian Pres. Bashar al-Assad and the senior liaison between Damascus and Lebanon-based Hezbollah. Reports are sketchy, but the assasination is said to have taken place sometime last week in Tartus (Tartous), a coastal town in northwest Syria, and the body was discovered in a hotel “Friday night-Saturday morning.”

According to a report published in The Media Line (referencing the Jordanian news agency Al-Bawaba as its source): Suleiman “was shot dead as he walked on the seashore in Tartous. The shooter managed to escape by sea.”

his information has not been independently verified.

According to Reuters:

“There was no immediate comment from the Syrian authorities on the reports. Syria is a tightly controlled state with powerful police and intelligence services. High-ranking officers hold senior state positions and are at times involved in rivalries and power struggles.”
