Syrian comedian Yassin Bakush killed, army blamed


Yassin Bakush syrian comedian

Popular Syrian comedian Yassin Bakush was killed on Sunday after his car was hit by a shell in an area of war-torn southern Damascus, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Anti-regime activists blamed the Syrian army for his death, and distributed via the Internet an amateur video of the body of a man believed to be Bakush, along with images of his passport and identity card.

Born in 1938 Bakush was famous across the Arab world for his roles in several television serials, theatre productions and films, which poked fun at politics and society in Syria at a time when state censorship was stifling.

Yesterday Syria lost another actor.

Sabah Obeid, who has been for over a month in a coma which was caused by a stroke passed away at the age of 63, LBC reported

    Why am I not surprised, All Atrocities happening in Syria are at the hands of the Government. Apparently.
    Yet the Terrorist pigs cause havoc like blowing themselves up in hope they with have 40 or 50 (or what ever the hell the count is now) virgins in heaven and the US and co fail to condemn these attacks. Got to love good old fashion western democracy

  2. Yoh yalibnan, do you guys have any news about what is going on in Arssal? I hear the LA surrounding the Hariri enclave, anyone out there know what is happening instead of this dude’s death? I guess comedians like each other.

      As for this, I guess it’s bad to lose good actors. There’s enough bad ones around for sure … ๐Ÿ˜‰
