Rebels battle for Syria border post near Mediterranean

Published: 03.22.14, 17:26 / Israel News

Islamist fighters in Syria battled President Bashar Assad's forces for control of a border crossing with Turkey close to the Mediterranean on Saturday, part of an offensive aimed at opening up a rebel link to the sea.

 

They said heavy clashes continued around Kasab crossing and a nearby village of the same name - both about 5 miles (8 km) from the coast - a day after rebels launched their assault.

 

Assad's forces have already lost control of most border crossings with Turkey during the three year civil war but had held on to Kasab, gateway to the coastal province of Latakia which has remained an Assad stronghold. (Reuters)
