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 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.

Nothing on the major news networks.
And the beat goes on.
Still not on Reuters, AP, ABC News, Yahoo News, nor Google News.
If it should come to pass that the supplier of your personal security decides it's time for you to move on... well, on you move.
holy shiite. can you say game changer?
if true then would it be the SAS and if so then we would never know as they never reveal their ops.
Dead mussie scum salute!
Russia won’t let the Syrian port out of their control.
Expect AQ to have an Iranian oder to them.
A karmic tsunami if true!
Lying down with Iranians can get you serious flea issues.
Assad death report dismissed as ridiculous rumor
On the one hand, it couldn’t have happened to a nastier guy.
On the other hand, this is really bad news. More Muzzie terrorists take over yet another country. Churches burned, Christians killed, Israel threatened.
Obama is smiling.
Let’s see the photos - proof of death, like we don’t have for other people who have been major muslim tools. And someone please tell me again why Turkey is in NATO??? very very very bad
I imagine a big question is whether the Iranians will evacuate, or have orders to die in place. Both Russia and the US would possibly guarantee any evacuation of Iranians, just to get them the heck out.
After that problem is over, the big issue will be Hezbollah and the new Syrian government. Being cut off from their sugar daddy will leave Hezbollah in crisis mode, and they may even try to take over the Lebanese government, since a Sunni government in Syria will not be friendly to them.
The next hundred hours are going to be interesting.
I am still waiting for the sirens on Drudge.
In the grand scheme of things, this event is trivial and petty compared to Obama’s NCAA bracket picks.
Kind of like anything truthful about The Won.
