Syrian government pushes into border town in Assad coastal heartland

Published: 06.15.14, 11:51 / Israel News

BEIRUT - Syrian government forces have pushed into Kasab, a village on the border with Turkey and in the coastal heartland of President Bashar al-Assad's Alawite minority sect, a monitoring group and state media said.

 

The withdrawal of most rebel forces from the village - including some linked to al Qaeda - is another blow to an opposition that has been undermined by recent gains by Assad's forces and by infighting.

 

A number of fighters stayed behind in Kasab after the departure of most of the rebels, who included fighters from the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said late on Saturday. (Reuters)
