A Wadi Ara family, whose son supposedly crossed the border into Syria to fight alongside rebels, has received word that he was killed in battles against the Syrian regime. The young man, in his 20s, flew abroad with two friends some three weeks ago and since then has been unreachable.
On Tuesday the family received a picture of a bullet ridden body and they identified it as their out of reach son. The family believes the two other young men are still in Syria. (Hassan Shaalan)
