Okaz: Syrian Interior minster died from his wounds


Syria’s interior minister who was wounded in a Damascus bombing has died of his wounds and was replaced by General Rustom Ghazali , a Free Syrian Army ( FSA) source told the Saudi Arabian newspaper Okaz.

Lebanon media reported last December 26 that Shaar headed home on a private jet after treatment in Beirut at the American University Hospital .

The FSA sources told Okaz that the government media reported that Ghazali was appointed as the Interior minister without disclosing the whereabouts of Shaar.

The source told Okaz that Shaar was brought back to Syria in a coffin and was buried quietly in Damascus . His family has reportedly emigrated to Russia
