Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s wife and his children have made a rare public appearance at a charity fund-raiser in Damascus for mothers of soldiers killed in the two-year conflict, his office said on Facebook Sunday.
The office said that Asma al-Assad, her three children as well as their cousins “took part Saturday in a charity event called... at the Damascus Opera House on the occasion of Mother’s Day.”
The event, dubbed ‘Mothers Rally’, was aimed at raising funds for the mothers of Syrian soldiers killed in fighting with rebels through the sale of crafts, the office said in a statement.
Assad’s stylish British-born and British-educated wife is rarely seen in public, let alone with her three children -- two sons and a daughter.
In June last year Russia dismissed as “rumors” speculation on the Internet she had taken refuge in the country amid the escalating violence in Syria.
