Damascus Bombing Still Mysterious
"Some political analysts IWPR spoke to have suggested that the bombing was a consequence of a power struggle between rival Syrian security services.
"One political writer in Damascus argued that the theory will be given even more credence if there’s confirmation of rumours that one of the bomb victims was Syrian general Abdul Kareem Abbas, who was being investigated by the United Nations International Independent Investigation Commission in connection with the assassination of former Lebanese premier Rafik Hariri. The authorities have so far insisted that only civilians were killed...
"Another political writer points out that the proximity of the explosion to a major security building also gives weight to claims that it was linked to a domestic power struggle."
If Abd al-Karim Abbas is still alive, would he please make himself known to the commentariat?
