Bushra Assad, the sister of Syrian President Bashar Assad has fled to Syria with her children, pan-Arab Al Arabiya news channel reported Tuesday. The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the veracity of this report.

The report comes just weeks after her husband, Assef Shawkat, was killed by a suicide bomber. The news channel cited an opposition website as saying that Bushra Assad has escaped to Dubai, where she has enrolled her children at school.
