Riad Hijab is a former agriculture minister and a loyalist in President Bashar Assad’s ruling Baath party.

He
was appointed as prime minister on June 23. The TV did not immediately
give a reason why Hijab was dismissed from his post Monday. It says Omar
Ghalawanji, Hijab’s deputy prime minister, was named as a temporary
replacement.

The announcement came hours after a bomb attack
ripped through the third floor of the state TV building in Damascus,
causing heavy material damage and light injuries.
