The Free Syrian Army moved its headquarters from Turkey to Syria, Mustafa Al-Sheikh, head of the rebel group's military council, announced Saturday.

Al-Sheikh, formerly a general in Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces until defecting earlier this year, said the move last week to an undisclosed "liberated" location in Syria was aimed at uniting rebel groups in the war-torn country.
