U.S. documents reveal Israel assassinated Syrian General Muhammad Suleiman in 2008

Leaked U.S. documents from the horde stolen by Edward Snowden point to Israeli naval commandos as the killers of the Syrian general on beach in Tartous on August 1, 2008.   The information was derived from intercepts of Israeli communications, and would seem to be more or less definitive.

The killing was noted here on August 3, 2008.

BBC reports note that $80 million cash was found in Suleiman's home by Syrian officials after his death.  BBC cites a 2009 U.S. diplomatic document.  We may presume that he did not win a lottery.
