Thursday, Syrian media announced the death of the former ambassador of Syria to Jordan, Bahjat Suleiman, as a result of his infection with the coronavirus.
The Syrian News Agency (SANA) reported that Suleiman died in a hospital in Damascus at the age of 72.
Suleiman served as Damascus’s ambassador to Amman between 2009 and 2014.
In 2014, the Jordanian foreign ministry said it considered Suleiman a persona non grata and gave him 24 hours to leave the country.
