WHAT? Seriously? This isn't anywhere in the MSM. What is going on?
I would think that if this had happened, we'd be hearing more about it.
Unless Syria was trying to keep it quiet ....
(which I think would be impossible)

Beirut: An attempt on the life of top Syrian rebel military leader, Col Riad al-Assad, was made on Monday after a bomb was planted in his car. The condition of the rebel leader is yet to be known as Syrian activists fear that he may have been seriously wounded or killed in the attack, as per a news agency report.

Could this all have been a misinterpretation of the person wounded.
Wrong Asaad ! ??
Col. Riad al-Asaad was wounded. (lost a leg)

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A top Syrian rebel military leader was wounded and perhaps killed by a bomb stuck to his car, activists said on Monday.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the blast targeted Col. Riad al-Asaad during a visit to the town of Mayadeen in eastern Syria.

This is a psycho-war on Syrian people.
And those who spread these news don't think that , one day , it maybe their turn.
The propaganda machine is taking pace and ignorant give it the fuel.

RT.com is a Russian website.
What do we know about the Russian government? It supports Assad.
Therefore, nothing less than denial could have come from there.
The truth may take its time, but Assad as a person can't be kept invisible for more than a few days or weeks. He is the center of Syrias government, without him there is no legal government possible.
We will see.

If Assad falls, the Muslim Brotherhood takes over in Syria. Exactly as they did in Libya & Egypt.
Precisely what this means, is that Israel's stability & likelihood to exist peacefully just dropped by an order of magnitude. Israel is a bastion of Western thought/ Judaism, a true fact despite the propaganda that percolates through alternative media (which depicts the whole state as a Zionist sham...)
Israel will ultimately sit totally land-locked in a sea of hatred for the principles upon which Israel, and the Western world, were established.
That's all good but you forgot one important fact. It's Israel and Israels allies who are supporting the terrorist and extremist groups in these countries.
If Israel is left standing alone in a sea of hatred then maybe that's a lesson to the people of Israel and people like you. Don't fund and arm terrorists in the hopes of stifling your enemies, because it doesn't work out well. The USA should have learned that already with the taliban.
it seems he was not shot either but
