Suicide in Damascus

Syrian Interior Minister, and former Syrian security chief in Lebanon, Major-General Ghazi Kanaan has committed suicide in his office in Damascus. He gave a last interview a few hours before his death, where he said: “We served Lebanon’s interests honourably and sincerely... We exerted joint efforts and spared no blood and this resulted in the liberation of Lebanon at a time that it was impossible to do so without Syria” (link).

How curious that the former head of Syrian operations in Lebanon would kill himself just as the investigations into Rafik Hariri’s death are intensifying. All that can be said is Allaah yirHamuh (may God have mercy on him).
