Syrian activist survives IS assassination attempt in Turkey

Colleagues say a Syrian independent media activist working in southeast Turkey has survived an assassination attempt claimed by the Islamic State group. Ahmed Abdelqader, founder of the Syrian media group Eye on Homeland, was shot on Sunday by two gunmen riding a motorbike in the city of Sanliurfa. Fellow Syrian activist Abu Ibrahim of the monitoring group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS) says Abdelqader is now “hospitalized, in a stable condition.”
