Israel minister calls for assassination of Syria’s Bashar Al-Assad

April 12, 2018

Israeli Housing Minister Yoav Galant has called for Syrian regime President Bashar Al-Assad to be assassinated, Sky News reported.

Israeli media reported that Al-Assad has left his presidential palace yesterday morning accompanied by a Russian military convoy for fear of an American strike, reports Russia has denied.

In preparation for a possible US-led strike on Syria, Russia Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) yesterday recommended all Russia flights exercise caution while travelling through the eastern Mediterranean region.

“Rosaviatsiya has sent telegrams to air transport companies notifying them to give special attention to planning flights in the Eastern Mediterranean region and to the importance of notifications provided by the aviation authority to alert pilots to hazards on the flight course,” a source at the Russian organisation told TASS news agency.

The international air traffic control agency Eurocontrol has also warned flights travelling over the Eastern Mediterranean to exercise extra caution, due to possible strikes over the next 72 hours that could interrupt radio navigation systems. Most flights have avoided the area since the start of the conflict, although Syrian Air and Lebanon’s Middle East Airlines continue to use Syrian airspace.
