The infamous Syrian president Bashaar al-Assad is at the hospital; his condition is reportedly critical, due to the stroke that he suffered most recently. Daily Sabah reported that, referring to the respective tweet of Syrian TV host Feisal al-Kasem and a number of Syrian, Lebanese and Saudi newspapers.
The message says that al-Assad regained consciousness but now he’s bedridden.
Lebanese and Saudi outlets previously wrote that the Syrian leader was hospitalized with an ischemic stroke yet on Saturday. However, the Facebook account of the Syrian government never mentioned the fact of Assad’s disease or taking him to the hospital.
The Syrian president’s regime is widely considered to be behind three chemical attacks that took place during the Syrian conflict.
