Syrian FSA commander dies in attack in southern Turkey

A commander from the rebel Free Syrian Army died in a bomb attack on his car in the southern Turkish province of Hatay on Wednesday, a news agency and two insurgent sources said. The rebel leader was named by all sources as Jamil Raadoun, the commander of Sukour al-Ghab, one of several groups fighting under the FSA banner. Raadoun had survived a similar attack in Turkey in April. The privately-run Dogan news agency said he died after explosives were detonated on his vehicle. Two Syrian rebel sources confirmed the death. Residents said the blast outside Raadoun’s home in the southeastern town of Antakya, near the Syrian border, shook nearby apartment blocks.
