Syrian troops launch offensive after dozens killed

Published: 12.13.13, 18:23 / Israel News

Syrian soldiers surrounded an industrial area near Damascus Friday after an al-Qaeda linked rebel faction infiltrated the area earlier this week, reportedly killing dozens of civilians, according to the government and activists.

 

Jabhat al-Nusra, also known as the Nusra Front, entered buildings housing workers and their families, shooting men, women and children in Adra, northeast of the capital, according to the reports. Most residents of the area are from the minority Alawite and Druse sects, which largely support President Bashar Assad in his fight against mainly Sunni rebels. (AP)
