ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT — Syria's official news agency says a former member of parliament and three members of his family have been killed in a rebel-held area the near the northern city of Aleppo.

SANA said today that “terrorists” fired at Ibrahim Azzouz's car in Sheik Said neighborhood near the city's airport, killing him along with his wife and their two daughters.

Rebels captured the strategic Sheik Said neighborhood, southeast of Aleppo on Saturday. It was a significant blow to regime forces because the area includes the road the army has used to supply troops.

The Syrian government refers to rebels as “terrorists.”
