Four intelligence soldiers from Syria's air force were attacked and killed by Syrian army defectors. The attackers opened fire towards the troops' car, which was on its way to the city of Homs.
According to the report, one of those killed, Khaled Idirs, holds the rank of a colonel. Syrian opposition sites said that some 400 troops defected from the regime's army on Saturday in the Homs vicinity. (Roee Nahmias)
