Jihadists make fresh Syria advance: NGO

A member of the IS (Islamic state) militant group parades in a street in the northern rebel-held Syrian city of Raqa on June 30, 2014Islamic State jihadists, building on vast land grabs in Iraq, have seized an army position in the Syrian city of Hasakeh, a monitoring group said Sunday. On another front in Syria’s complex civil war, rebels seeking President Bashar al-Assad’s ouster captured a weapons depot in Hama province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. In Hasakeh in the northeast, “IS jihadists took over the army’s Regiment 121 (base) at Maylabiyeh” after a three-day battle, said the Britain-based Observatory. On Twitter, supporters of IS, which first emerged in Syria’s war in spring 2013, celebrated the army position’s “liberation” at the hands of the jihadists.
