Senior Scientist Aziz Asber Assassinated In Central Syria

He was killed on Saturday by an explosive device planted on his auto.

Also on Tuesday, the New York Times quoted an unnamed official with a Middle Eastern intelligence organization as confirming that Israel was responsible for the attack.

Asbar was not among them, perhaps because he was associated with Syria's missile program rather than the development of chemical weapons.

Iran had also alleged Israeli involvement in assassinating four nuclear scientists: Masoud Alimohammadi, Majid Shehriari, Rezaeinejad and Mustafa Ahmadi roshan, between 2010 and 2012.

China set to respond to new round of United States tariffs

A preeminent rocket scientist is dead, and Syria says Israel is to blame.

Israel's minister of intelligence says he "welcomes" news that a Syrian scientist was killed by a auto bomb, even as Tel Aviv denies any part in the murder.

Israel's Hadashot TV news said Sunday night that he was in charge of a project improving the range and accuracy of the regime's Scud missiles.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday dismissed the media reports.

Congo's health ministry confirms 3 more cases of Ebola
Nearly 1000 people who have had "contact" with the virus have been registered in health zones under surveillance, it said. The area comprises one million displaced people and shares borders with neighbouring countries of Rwanda and Uganda.

If the assassination was carried out by Mossad, it was the latest in a long line of Israeli attacks targeting Syrian weapons capabilities and development.

Asbar headed the Maysaf research centre in Hama, which was hit by Israeli air strikes last month and in September a year ago, the Observatory said. The SSRC's facility in Masyaf, allegedly involved in the production of non-conventional arms as well as medium- and long-range scud missiles, has been targeted multiple times over the past year by air strikes blamed on Israel.

Early 2017 marked the low point for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his country's now seven-year-old civil war with his authority confined to just 17 percent of national territory.

A succession of victories since then over both the Daesh terror group and various rebel factions has extended regime control to almost two-thirds of the country.
