Report: Syrian forces clearing out rebels from stronghold near Lebanon

Published: 03.16.14, 09:17 / Israel News

Syrian forces in Yabroud were in the final stages on Sunday of clearing out rebels holed up there for months and had begun dismantling roadside bombs laid by the militants, a military source told Reuters.

 

Capturing Yabroud, the last major rebel bastion near the Lebanese border north of Damascus, would help President Bashar Assad secure the land route linking his Mediterranean coastal stronghold with the capital Damascus, and choke off a cross-border rebel supply line from Lebanon.
