President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Nasr Al-Hariri, began receiving condolences for the death of Syria’s Ambassador to Qatar Nizar Al-Hiraki at the headquarters of the Syrian Embassy in the Qatari capital Doha.
The funeral was attended by a large number of diplomats, officials, ambassadors of countries to the State of Qatar, and members of the Syrian community in Qatar.
Al-Hiraki was buried in Doha earlier on Wednesday, with the former imam of Al-Omari Mosque in Dara’a, Sheikh Ahmad Al-Sayasneh, leading the funeral prayer, which was attended by hundreds of mourners from the Syrian community, Qatari citizens, and diplomats.
Al-Hariri received a letter of condolences from the Emir of the State of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, earlier on Wednesday.
He also received a phone call from director of the Syrian file in the Turkish Foreign Ministry, Ambassador Selçuk Ünal, who offered his condolences, as well as from many officials and diplomats from friendly and sisterly states.
Al-Hiraki died of coronavirus at a hospital in Istanbul on Sunday. He was the first Syrian ambassador after Doha recognized the SOC as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people in early 2013.
He was born in Damascus in 1962 to parents from the town of Al-Maliha Al-Gharbiya in Dara’a province. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
