Assad assasinated?

Still just a rumor. I'm sure there will be a confirmation one way or the other sometime today.

I haven't seen anything to the effect that Assad has been assasinated. Some leaders of his Alawite faction are negotiating with the opposition forces, which shows some weakness in his government; but the opposition seems in even worse shape:

03.24.13
Syrian opposition coalition falls into disarray



In this photo released by the Syrian official news agency SANA, Syrian doctors treat an injured man who was wounded at the Eman Mosque where a suicide bomber blew himself up, killing Sheikh Mohammad Said Ramadan al-Buti [NOTE: not Assad], an 84-year-old cleric known to all Syrians as a religious scholar, at the Mazraa district, in Damascus, Syria, Thursday, March 21, 2013. A suicide bomber blew himself up during evening prayers inside a mosque in Damascus Thursday, killing a top Sunni Muslim preacher and longtime supporter of President Bashar Assad and least 13 other people, state TV reported. Al-Buti's death is a big blow to Syria's embattled leader, who is fighting mainly Sunni rebels seeking his ouster.

By BEN HUBBARD and JAMAL HALABY
Associated Press

"BEIRUT -- Syria's Western-backed opposition plunged into disarray on Sunday as its president resigned and its military leader refused to recognize a prime minister recently elected to lead an interim rebel government.

"The chaos inside the opposition Syrian National Coalition threatened to undermine its bid to unite the forces battling President Bashar Assad and better organize the fight to oust his regime. It also could hamper support from the U.S. and other powers, who have hoped the Coalition would emerge as the most credible body to channel aid to anti-Assad groups inside Syria and undermine the Islamic extremists who dominate the fight on key fronts of the nation's civil war..."

Supposedly, Assad is fine.

Unconfirmed reports of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s shooting highlight chaos in country - NY Daily News

But online updates said the Syrian leader’s shooting was false and that he was alive and in high spirits. The conflicting reports highlight the chaos that continues to engulf the country, which has been mired in a bloody civil war for two years.

Apparently it's a fake rumour started in Israel.
He's not dead and was not killed by any Iranian bodyguard as all his bodyguards are Syrian.
