Mohammad Darra Jamo Assassinated In Lebanon
(UNCA) Mohammad Darra Jamo, a commentator who worked for Syrian state media and often appeared on Arab TV channels to press Assad’s cause, was riddled with bullets by gunmen at home in the southern town of Sarafand, Lebanese security sources said.
Syrian state media blamed an “armed terrorist group” for the killing which took place at around 2 a.m. (7 p.m. ET Tuesday).
Lebanese security sources said supporters of the Syrian rebel opposition were top suspects in the killing in a Shi’ite area of southern Lebanon, where security is normally tight.
Jamo’s wife, who was with him during the attack but not harmed, said on Hezbollah TV that officials from Syria’s ruling Baath party had called her husband on Tuesday and warned him to be careful.
That call came on the day a Hezbollah security official was killed and two wounded when a convoy of vehicles heading to Syria from Lebanon was subjected to a bomb and gun ambush.
