The international non-profit organization, which publishes a free website (voltairenet.org) in eight languages, said that Prince Bandar was killed because of his role in the July 18 deadly bombing in Damascus.
The bombing killed at least four high-profile Syrian security officials, including Defense Minister Dawoud Rajiha and his deputy Assef Shawkat who is also President Assad's brother-in-law.
However, there has been no confirmation or denial neither from Saudi officials nor from the Syrian government yet.
Bandar, who was Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States from 1983 to 2005, was named the kingdom’s Secretary General of the National Security Council in 2005. On 19 July 2012, he was appointed Director General of the Saudi Intelligence Agency by King Abdullah.
Many said his promotion was a reward for the role he played in organizing the attack in Damascus, the organization reported.
The syrian military forces have cleared more areas in the city of Aleppo with reports of renewed heavy fighting between Syrian security forces and the armed rebel groups in the city.
According to an editorial in the pan-Arab newspaper, al-Quds al-Arab, Riyadh has been exerting pressure on Amman to join the anti-Syria war by cutting off its financial aid to the country since March 2011. The pressure came after Jordan’s refusal to support the armed opposition groups fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
