Syria’s government said on Monday that Prime Minister Riad Hijab had been fired — but a spokesman for the premiere and opposition members said he had actually become the latest official to defect from President Bashar Assad’s autocratic regime.
State-controlled Syrian TV made the announcement Monday of Hijab’s dismissal from the post, which he assumed just two months ago, without giving any further detail.
A reliable opposition source tells CBS News’ Khaled Wassef that Hijab and his family have safely left Syrian territory.
