Assad's forces advance into rebel border town

Published: 04.09.14, 13:20 / Israel News

BEIRUT - Forces loyal to President Bashar Assad advanced into the rebel-held Syrian border town of Rankous on Wednesday, consolidating their control over a former rebel supply line from neighboring Lebanon.

 

The assault on Rankous is the latest stage of an offensive by the army and Hezbollah fighters to seal off the border region and secure the main highway leading north from Damascus towards central Syria, Homs, and the Mediterranean coast.

 

Hezbollah's television channel Al-Manar said Rankous was under complete control of Assad's forces, but Syrian state television and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said fighting continued on the edges of town. (Reuters)
