Man who helped make ‘the conscience of the revolution’ killed along with colleague Hamoud Jneed
One of Syria’s most prominent activists, known for eye-catching protest banners and influential “Radio Fresh” broadcasts, has been assassinated in the rebel-held northern enclave in Idlib province.
Raed Fares took on the regime of Bashar al-Assad and the proliferation of Islamist extremists that grew out of Syria’s civil war with equal energy and commitment. Fellow activist Hamoud Jneed was murdered with him on Friday morning by gunmen who have not been identified.
