Informed sources say Israeli agents are behind the assassination of Syrian president's security advisor and liaison officer to Hezbollah.

Mohammad Suleiman, who was a Syrian top security official and the officer in charge of liaison with Lebanon's Hezbollah movement, was shot by a sniper on the coast of Syria's Tartous port on Friday.
According to independent sources in Syria, the sniper was an Israeli agent.
Suleiman's body was buried overnight.
In February, Imad Mughnyiah, a prominent Hezbollah figure, was murdered in a car bomb explosion in the Syrian capital.
The Israeli regime extended the tenure of Mossad chief Meir Dagan for a second term following the successful assassination of Mughniyah.
