Rebels capture security posts in northern Syria
Question of the Day
BEIRUT — Activists say Syrian rebels have killed more than 20 soldiers and captured three security compounds in a northern town near the border with Turkey.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the capture of the compounds and the deaths on Friday came during intense clashes in the town of Ras al-Ayn near the border with Turkey.
The Observatory said the captured compounds belonged to the Military Intelligence, Air Force Intelligence and General Intelligence Directorate. They are the most powerful security agencies in the country.
The Local Coordination Committees, another activist group, said regime forces are sending tanks to the town to help in the fight.
The heavy clashes in the town started Thursday afternoon forcing thousands of people to flee across the border to Turkey for safety.
