(ANSAmed) - AMMAN, Aug. 8 - Syrian Prime Minister Riad Hijab, who defected from the Assad regime, arrived in Jordan only last night and not Monday morning as members of his entourage had previously stated. This was reported to ANSA by sources of rebels' Free Army. In the last hours, Syrian activists of the southern region of Daraa, at the border with the Hashemite Kingdom, have published an amateur video in which Hijab can be clearly seen, dressed in a black suit, no tie, smiling, together with other people. The activists defined themselves as 'Coordination Committee of Nuayma', a village east of Daraa, and affirmed that the footage, whose date and place of execution could not be confirmed, was shot shortly before the Hijab's entry in Jordan .

Previously, the spokesman of the ex-premier said that Hijab was in Jordan and was trying to get to Qatar.(ANSAmed).
