Official: Head of Syrian air defense killed

Published: 05.18.14, 16:18 / Israel News

A Syrian official says the head of the country's air defenses has been killed in clashes near the capital, Damascus. The official said Sunday that Lt. Gen. Hussein Ishaq was killed as rebels attacked a Syrian air defense base near the town of Mleiha.


The official said the incident occurred Saturday. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to brief journalists about Ishaq's death. Ishaq is one of a few high-ranking military officers to be killed in the country's 3-year-old civil war. (AP)
