Syrian extremist rebels raid Shiite village

Published: 06.12.13, 23:20 / Israel News

Syrian rebels, including Sunni extremists, stormed a village and battled pro-regime militiamen, killing more than 60 Shiite fighters and civilians in an attack steeped in the sectarian hatreds that increasingly characterize the civil war, activists said Wednesday.

 

In the raid, which comes at a time when the West is worried that extremists are increasingly joining the rebellion, the victorious fighters raised black Sunni Islamist flags over the eastern village of Hatla. In amateur videos, the fighters - some wearing al-Qaeda-style headbands - vented anti-Shiite slurs and fired in the air. (AP)
