Assad Confirmed Dead, Iran Attempts To Control Syria Army
Israel News Agency ^ | March 24, 2013 | Israel News Agency Staff

Posted on 03/25/2013 3:32:58 PM PDT by Sopater

Jerusalem, Israel --- March 24, 2013 … Russian media sources have confirmed that Syria President Bashar Assad was shot by an Iranian bodyguard Saturday night.

"The lone assassination pumped several bullets at point blank range into Assad," said the source. "Assad was rushed to Al-Shami Hospital in Damascus in critical condition. He died on the operating table from heart failure resulting from massive blood loss."

An Israeli security analyst believes the report to be accurate.

"In the last 24 hours have we seen Assad? Any photographs or video? No. Nor will we see any as loyalists who are closest to Assad have been threatened if any leaked photos or reports reach Western media. Iran is attempting to take control of the Syrian army and its wealth of weapons as Syrian solders are now deserting in mass. I don't believe that the West will allow any Iranian control of Damascus."

"There was a reason why Barack Obama visited Israel. And it was not for a photo op with Miss Israel. I don't think Netanyahu would apologize to Turkey or to anyone. But if it was between a dead Assad and saying sorry to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan I think there was no hesitation in making that telephone call to Ankara."

The Israeli analyst said that several events have taken place in the last 24 hours including the Syrian army shooting at an Israeli border patrol unit. It is believed that this action was coordinated by Assad loyalists who stood outside the dead President's hospital room to deflect the global media from the assassination and to pull Israel into a war with the Syrian army. The leader of the Western-backed Syrian opposition coalition announced he was resigning.

Moaz al-Khatib didn’t detail what motivated his decision, in a status update made on social media Website Facebook. But he did say that he now had the ability to “work with freedom that cannot be available within the official institutions.”

Al-Khatib also said the international community has failed to adequately support the rebels’ fight against Assad.

Opposition members from Syrian's President Bashar Assad's Alawite sect demanded his overthrow today and urged their co-religionists in the Syrian army to rebel.

"We call on our brothers in the Syrian army, specifically members of our sect, not to take up arms against their people and to refuse to join the army," the delegates said in a news release after two days of meeting in the Egyptian capital.

The Israeli analyst said that the Israeli army is on heightened alert in the North and the US is moving a battle carrier group off the Syrian coast. That the US would not tolerate any further action by Iran inside Syria and has warned Iranians to leave the country.

"Assad had complete and total support from both Iran and Russia. They backed Assad in his bloody campaign which resulted in the loss of over 70,000 Syrian civilians. No one helped those Syrians except for one country - Israel. They have taken in dozens of wounded Syrians across the border who are now being cared for in Israeli hospitals."

"We can expect to see a photo of a dead Assad within 48 hours. There are many phone cameras in the pockets of those guarding his body. One of those photos would be worth almost a million dollars to the one getting that photo out to the Western media."

This doesn't seem to be getting much press over here. Is it for real?

It's an Israel news source. Israel has the best intelligence in the world. I'd say it's true.

Russia's problem....Syria is a Russian ally. Now what the hell do they do.

Headlines: Russia and US punt....

He has either been dead for three days or has been killed eight times since Saturday.

Or, he is still alive.

This isn't completely accurate. The Turks and Jordanians set up a number of refugee camps on the border with Syria, handling many more people than the Israelis. True, considering how miserable Israel's relations are with Syria, it's amazing they took in any, and it's to their credit. But, the refugee burden is higher on other countries bordering Syria.

Well, I read that he was somewhere between life and death. I guess that means that he’s not exactly alive, but he’s not exactly dead either.

The ‘Israel News Agency’ that was respectable is bankrupt and shut down. I believe someone just bought the name. No other Israeli sources that I’ve seen confirm it, not even rumor-mongering Debka. Anyone seen Russian sources that confirm it?

British, American, Israeli and Russian espionage (oops, I guess they call it “intelligence” today) are all tools of new world order.

For third world dictators, if the money men tell them to jump, they need to jump, or the “American” bloc or the “Soviet” bloc will give them their walking papers.

It’s going to take a lot of public awareness to stop international banking and loosen the grip it has on the governments of the nations of the world.

Their power is so complete now it would be laughable if it wasn’t so horrific.

That link does not look like a “News Agency” website. Assad was reportedly living on a Russian Warship in Tartus Bay, one would have to believe the attack took place there, which is suspect, but somebody sure wants this to get around. I’ll wait and see.

Russian media sources have confirmed that Syria President Bashar Assad was shot by an Iranian bodyguard Saturday night.

If so it still hasn't been picked up by the major media world wide.

Nary a mention from Drudge, Fox or any sources.

I look to see if it’s mentioned in Prime Time tonight. O’Reilly won’t touch it until it’s confirmed.

I still say this is highly dubious. I’ve never heard of this source. Click the link. The website looks extremely unprofessional. It could be an attempt to spark a rebellion in the Syrian Army. Anyway, I doubt the world media would be that behind the 8 ball on a major story like this.

It’s an Israeli source relying on a Russian source.

It’s the only thing I can find insisting he’s dead.
