Israeli snipers killed top Syrian official at his seaside chalet – Edward Snowden files reveal

Newly uncovered NSA files leaked by Edward Snowden reveal that Israeli commandos were behind the 2008 assassination of Syrian President al-Assad’s closest confidante.

According to files included in Snowden’s massive leak, ‘Israeli Naval commandos’ ambushed and shot in the head Brigadier General Mohammed Suleiman in as he vacation in the Mediterranean resport town of Tartus.

The U.S. documents reveal the assassination was ‘the first known instance of Israel targeting a legitimate government official.’
