Report: Assad's mother visits daughter in Dubai

High ranking sources in the Arab Emirates told Alquds Alarabi that Anisa Makhlouf, Syrian President Bashar Assad's mother, has reached Dubai in order to visit her daughter.


The chief of police in Dubai confirmed that Bushra Assad, the president's sister, whose husband was killed last summer in Damascus, is with her children in Arab Emirates. According to the report, Assad's sister left Syria following her husband's death, though some claim her departure was due to a dispute with her brother. (Roi Kais)
