Few days ago, Syrian President Bashar al Assad met with a parliamentary delegation from Belgium. During the meeting, the attention was caught by the left hand of Assad. During all the meeting, while speaking with the Belgian MPs, Assad kept his left hand always steady, lying it on the armrest of the armchair. Even in the video broadcasted by the TV of the Syrian regime, it is possible to see the eyes of one of the members of the Belgian delegation, while watching the left hand of Assad with special attention. For many observers, this is the proof that Assad suffered a stroke and now the establishment of the regime is keeping him on power, only as a symbolic figure.
