Assad’s father-in-law in denial: ‘No children being bombed in Syria’

Fawaz Akhras, 69, still supports Bashar al-Assad’s rule and continues to lead a privileged life in Britain, living with his wife Sahar in Acton

When Asma al-Assad’s father was asked about his feelings toward the deaths of children at the hands of his son-in-law’s regime, Dr. Fawaz Akhras responded: “What children? I’ve seen no children being bombed.”

His comments were made to the Daily Express’ Adam Helliker, who approached Akhras last week outside the private Cromwell hospital in Earl’s Court.

Akhras, 69, still supports Bashar al-Assad’s rule and continues to lead a privileged life in Britain, living with his wife Sahar in Acton.

More than 430 people have been killed in bombardment on the eastern half since the assault on Aleppo was announced on September 22, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
