Syrian scientist assassinated in car bombing: Report

Syrian scientist Aziz Azbar
Press TV – August 5, 2018

A Syrian scientist has reportedly been assassinated in a car bomb attack after he survived Israeli attacks on his research center.

Aziz Azbar, the head of the Syrian Scientific Research and Studies Center in the city of Masyaf, was killed along with his driver in a bombing Saturday night, Syrian and Lebanese news outlets reported.

The scientific center, run by Azbar, had been the target of at least two Israeli aerial assaults over the past months.

Israel frequently attacks military targets inside Syria in an attempt to prop up terrorist groups that have been suffering defeats against Syrian government forces.

Israel has also been providing weapons to anti-Damascus militants as well as medical treatment to Takfiri elements wounded in Syria.

Western countries accuse the Syria government of possessing chemical weapons, an allegation rejected by Damascus.

Syria surrendered its chemical stockpile in 2013 to a mission led by the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

Damascus has repeatedly accused Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of providing militants with banned weapons.

  1. “Israel frequently attacks military targets inside Syria in an attempt to prop up terrorist groups that have been suffering defeats against Syrian government forces”.

    And Israel, and the USA, continue to tell the lie that “the Syrian Regime” and the Iranian Regime” are a threat to World Peace(you can throw Nth Korea in there as well)…….I think that the American Media, who continue to peddle this utter rubbish are a threat to World Peace, by keeping the American people completely unaware of reality.
