BEIRUT: Syria’s Interior Minister Mohammad Shaar, who was treated at a Beirut hospital for over a week following a bomb attack in Damascus, departed Lebanon Wednesday his home country.

The Syrian official left Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport on a private jet headed to Damascus in the afternoon.

Shaar was lightly wounded in a deadly attack on the Interior Ministry in Damascus earlier this month and was admitted to the American University of Beirut Medical Center on Dec. 19.

The bomb attack was claimed by the Jihadist Al-Nusra front.

Shaar, born in Latakia in 1950 and a member of Assad’s Alawite minority, served as head of military police before the president appointed him interior minister in April 2011, part of a government installed four weeks after the revolt broke out.
