Bashir Al-Assad Shot By Bodyguard? UPDATED

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



Russian, Arabic and Israeli news sources have confirmed the death of Syrian President Bashar Assad who was apprently shot by an Iranian bodyguard named Mehdi Jacoby, on Saturday night, 23rd March 2013.
“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.”
Amid concerns that Iran will attempt to control the Syrian army, 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.”

Yet the mainstream press isn’t touching the story except to say that its just rumours. I guess we shall haveto wait and see.  That Israel is taking it serious does give it some credibility in my eyes. -Mort


Arab media sources confirmed press reports that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was on Saturday evening for serious injury after suffering a shots fired by a member of his personal guard. 


The sources said that President Assad was transferred to Shami Hospital in Damascus, suffering from wounds and described it as very serious, and he is fighting for his life there, while the Syrian army has closed all roads leading to the hospital. Even the meantime there has been no official statement by the system, while sources close to him denied what was in the news altogether, noting that the president was in good health and high spirits, and will deliver a keynote speech in the coming days.

The MSM is not reporting on this as of yet.  I’m assuming because its unconfirmed.  If true, it would be a huge blow to the government side. -Mort

      Translated from WHERE? Another bogus hoax. Remind us not to read your posts in future, zionist agent

      • lightningfromsky

        how about al ‘ Jezeera ?—they reported there are reports and that Syrian officials downplayed it and said Assad would soon be addressing the citizens with a policy address—so you should use your own name troll

        • Anonymax

          I also heard that a reporter was reporting that a report had reportedly been re-reported, strange times. :grin:

          Jazeera is about as credible as the BBC and its other MSM presstitute cousins, and on Syria it is ZILCH. Ask Jazeera about Qatar’s violation of intl law in arming Syria with Al Qaeda death squads

        My suspicions are about the assassinated Imam killed in a Mosque –and why the News media hasn’t discussed that and has allowed it to shuttle out of the News Cycle?

          Why would an IRANIAN body guard kill Assad? Because Ahmedinjad is jewish, as we know? He gave the order, as he is another sayan working for the filth

          This post should be deleted. Let the zio-garbage conduct their psy war elsewhere. It only makes him look like a jackass and takes up space on BIN that should be saved for real information.
          Mossad agents should be banned from alternative media. They already control the MSM- let the donkeys stay there.

      There is a link today on the Drudge Report to this story. Unfortunately, the link takes you to a page that is not in English.

      • Anonymous

        nothing on that site states anything about Assad shot and killed.

        • cece

          When I tried looking for the story on Drudge the next day, the story had been scrubbed from the website.

      Trusted bodyguards make the best assassins, the mafia used them to murder the opposition. Also beloved spouses have often poisoned a mate for insurance money. Nobody is worthy of trust.

      • StraightDopes

        That’s a deplorable attitude, and it’s actually the attitude the Enemy *wants* us to have.

        I understand your sentiments and where you’re coming from, but seriously, you need to change that sort of thinking. We ALL need to change that sort of thinking.

        • ElOregonian

          If people thought like you the world would be a wonderful place. Unfortunately, evil people live amongst us so you have to think like a thief in order to know how to prevent theft. Same thing as a Police Detective, you have to think like a criminal in order to solve crimes.

          Naivete is a dangerous condition to have. It continues to let criminals commit the same crimes over and over again.

    • Wretched Infidel

      Oh, I hope it is true, and I hope the bodyguard has powerful friends who help him get away alive and I hope the next time someone does it they get him shot dead…let it be done

        “other alternative news sites have this story. if it turns out to be true, will you be nicer to mort? please let our beloved alternative news never turn into a lie machine like the msm.”

        get real, mort and co do nothing but post outlandish claims that ultimately all are proven to be false.

        if youre looking for alternative news here, youre going to be disappointed, unless youre an idiot, then youll be happy.

          … already proven to be false. Took me five minutes to read that all source references ended in dot IL.

          These were the Arab sources mind. Hmm how likely that the sources, who are actually in Israel, really knows the minutiae of the Syrian woes.

      Why is it that intelligence takes a dive with posters all blaming Israel, then call someone that supports them a Shill or Zionist, too many ragheads on this site

      With all due respect, this article may be correct, although I doubt it. It is worth looking at the sources for these stories as was done in “Before the News” previously:

      With all due respect, there is another angle to this story concerning the sources and their likely allegiance.
