A senior rebel commander in southern Syria was killed in fighting with government troops in the town of Tafas on Monday, sources on both sides.

Lieutenant Colonel Yasser Abbud, “leader of the Fallujah-Houran brigade… was killed fighting against regime troops in Tafas”, a spokesman for the rebel Military Council in the southern province of Daraa said.

Better known by his nom-de-guerre Abu Ammar, the commander “headed the operations room in Daraa province,” which borders Jordan.

State television also reported the commander’s death, describing him as a “criminal, treacherous… deserter”.
