Syrian troops and rebels clash near Turkish border

Published: 03.22.14, 21:05 / Israel News

BEIRUT - Syrian troops launched a counteroffensive Saturday in an attempt to regain a border crossing point with Turkey a day after it fell in the hands of rebels led by members of an al-Qaeda-linked group, activists and state media said.

  

Rami Abdurrahman
who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said opposition fighters led by members of the al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front are in control of the crossing point "but have been targeted by regime forces since yesterday." The Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen TV, which has reporters throughout Syria, said Syrian warplanes carried out several air raids in the Kassab area.

 

State-run news agency SANA said Syrian troops are on the offensive in the area and killed several opposition fighters including a Saudi citizen whom it said was the leader of the Ansar al-Sham faction. It said a local leader of the Nusra Front also died in the fighting. (AP)
