BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – The head of the Syrian Air Force Intelligence Directorate, Major General Jamil Hassan, has been admitted to a hospital in Lebanon, a source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.

According to the source, the Air Force Intelligence chief is seeking treatment for an undisclosed illness in Lebanon.

The source also denied reports that the new Lebanese Interior Minister, Raya Al-Hassan, was asked by Interpol to hand him over.

Hassan is one of the longest-serving intelligence chiefs in Syria and considered one of the most powerful men in the country.

The source? It would be hard to understand why he would not seek medical attention (and protection during any illness recovery) in Russia for all the obvious reasons.
