Top pro-Assad official eliminated in southern Lebanon

17 July 2013

A prominent Syrian pro-Assad figure was eliminated outside his home in southern Lebanon early on Wednesday, regime-run media in Damascus reported.

Mohammed Darrar Jammo, a political analyst who often appeared on Arab TV stations, was gunned down outside his home in the coastal town of Sarafand by gunmen, the SANA news agency reported.

The town is in predominantly Shiite southern Lebanon where Assad enjoys wide support.

SANA blamed an “armed terrorist group” for the killing which took place at around 2 a.m.

Jammo was head of the political and international relations division of the International Organization for Arab Immigrants.

He was one of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s strongest defenders, according to The Associated Press.
