#Assad’s Sister reported to have defected.

#Damascus: #Bushra Assad, the sister of Bashar Al Assad and the widow of Asef Shawkat, the slain chief of intelligence of Syria, is reported to have defected and left Syria permanently due to a dispute with her brother. If true, this would come as a big blow to the #Assad regime since this would be the closest relative of Bashar to have defected.
