Report: Opposition kills top Syrian officials

Al Jazeera on Sunday quoted Syrian rebel leaders saying that opposition forces had killed several top officials of the Bashar Assad regime, including Defense Minister Dawoud Rajiha.
According to the report, which Syrian television vehemently denied, the Free Syrian Army also killed Assad's brother-in-law Assef Shawkat and former Defense Minister Hasan Turkmani in an overnight operation.
The Jerusalem Post could not independently verify the report.
