Assad’s Sister Bushra Is Moving to Abu Dhabi, Al-Diyar Reports

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s sister has decided to move to Abu Dhabi because of the dangerous situation in her country, Lebanon’s pro-Syria al-Diyar newspaper said today.

Bushra al-Assad, whose husband Assef Shawkat was killed in a July explosion, wants her children to pursue their education in Abu Dhabi in a “secure atmosphere,” the newspaper reported, without saying where it got the information. Shawkat, who was Syria’s deputy defense minister, was one of four top security officials who died in the explosion.
