The head of Syria’s air force intelligence has been reportedly killed in his office in the Syrian capital by one of his aides, Syrian opposition sources told Al Arabiya Sunday.

Lieutenant Jamil Hassan was assassinated on Saturday in his office by an aid who worked with the Ahfad al-Rasul, or Grandchildren of the Prophet Brigade, sources affiliated with the opposition Free Syrian Army (FSA) said according to pan–Arab Al Arabiya TV.

The air force intelligence chief was targeted as rebel groups within the country have been pounded from the skies by pilots loyal to Syrian President Bahar al-Assad’s regime.

Hassan, an Allawite from Homs, is reportedly considered one of Assad’s closest advisors.
