Syrian astronaut flees to Turkey

Published: 08.05.12, 18:48 / Israel News

Syria's first man in space has fled to Turkey and joined opposition forces fighting President Bashar Assad's regime, the latest in a string of high-ranking defections from the conflict-stricken country, Turkey's state-run news agency reported Sunday.


Mohammad Ahmad Faris, 61, crossed into Turkey after reaching the headquarters of the Free Syrian Army in Aleppo, meeting with rebel commanders there and declaring his solidarity with the umbrella group of rebel fighters, the Anadolu agency reported. (AP)
