As the Syrian government continues it's violent crack down against anti-regime protesters, Assad loyalists are also turning their aggression to US Ambassador Robert Ford.
The U.S. Ambassador to Syria - who has repeatedly demonstrated his support for anti-government protestors - was attacked in Damascus last week by a supporter of President Bashal al-Assad, a new video shows.
A video broadcast by Syrian television pictures pro-Assad protestors following Ambassador Robert Ford and chanting slogans. One protestor then approaches Ford from behind and tries to wrap him in a poster featuring a picture of the Syrian president.
Ford’s security team, which was already rushing him to a waiting car, pushed the Ambassador into the vehicle.
Tensions have been heating up between the Syria and the United States over the last several months.
