Turkey Foils Kidnapping of Syria Rebel Army Chief, Milliyet Says

Turkish authorities foiled a plan to kidnap the rebel Free Syrian Army’s founder and chief from a refugee camp, Milliyet reported.

Two Turks were collaborating with a Syrian spy to abduct Riad al-Asaad, a former colonel in President Bashar al-Assad’s army who fled to Turkey and started an opposition force, according to the Istanbul-based newspaper. The three people accused of planning the kidnapping were detained and freed pending trial, Milliyet said, citing police and court records.

Turkey’s intelligence organization reportedly prevented efforts to kidnap senior Syrian opposition commanders earlier this year.
