Damascus - General Hisham Ikhtiyar, the head of Syrian national security wounded in a Damascus bomb blast that killed three senior officials, died of his wounds on Friday, state television announced.

"The leadership of the [ruling] Baath party offers its condolences to the people on the death of the comrade, General Hisham Ikhtiyar, chief of national security, who succumbed to his wounds before noon," the broadcaster said.

Ikhtiyar was wounded along with Interior Minister Mohammed al-Shaar in the Wednesday bombing at National Security headquarters, which was claimed by the rebel Free Syrian Army.

Defence Minister General Daoud Rajha, Assad's brother-in-law Assef Shawkat and General Hassan Turkmani, head of the regime's crisis cell on the uprising, were all killed in the explosion.

    A noble human life does not end on earth with death. It continues in the minds and the deeds of friends, as well as in the thoughts and the activity of the nation.

      Finally I can agree with you fidel...what I thought of this animal continues to be the same as what I think of him now that he is dead – a ruthless animal. Another monster leaves planet earth - good riddance. There are 17000 Syrian souls in the ‘after life’ waiting for your friend fidel – waiting to kick his but down to hell... maybe you would like to join him? with your attitude & outlook, I’m sure you would find hell quite comfortable.

      The rapid developments in Syria, has certainly shown Fidel's true colours !! It is a GOD send , that there are so few Fidel's in this world. It is not only that they support; TERORISTS/TYRANTS/SCUM OF THE EARTH/MASS MURDERERS, But they even have to support the DOGS that do their dirty work. These suuporters are the ROT of soceity, whose obsession with being anti western, leads them to a silly, childish little world, where the leftits entertain each other!!!

      Fidel believes that Syria's security chief, who was responsible for the murder, detention, torture and rape of tens of thousands of Syrians just because they wanted to vote, led a noble human life.
