Beirut: An attempt on the life of top Syrian rebel military leader, Col Riad al-Assad, was made on Monday after a bomb was planted in his car. The rebel leader was wounded in the attack, as per a news agency report.

The blast reportedly took place during Assad’s visit to the town of Mayadeen in eastern Syria, said Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Col Riad al-Assad is a prominent Army defector who became head of the Free Syrian Army, an umbrella group that tried to gather rebel fighters under a unified command.
But al-Asaad became little more than a figurehead and his group has been superseded by the Office of the Chiefs of Staff, associated with the opposition Syrian National Coalition.
