Rebels capture town in northwest Syria

Published: 03.24.14, 11:18 / Israel News

BEIRUT - Activists said Monday rebels have captured a small town in northwest Syria near the Turkish border.


The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said opposition fighters took Kassab in Latakia province on Sunday. The activist group says fighting is raging Monday outside the town.


Rebels have also seized a nearby border crossing to Turkey just outside of Kassab since launching an offensive in Latakia late last week. The mountainous coastal province is a bastion of support for President Bashar Assad. (AP)
