Syria govt retakes strategic town on Turkey border

Syrian soldiers flash the victory sign after seizing control of al-Sarkha village in the Qalamun mountains, on April 14, 2014Syria’s army said Sunday it had recaptured the strategic town of Kasab and the only border crossing with Turkey in Latakia province, after it fell to rebels almost three months ago. “After crushing many members of the mercenary terrorist gangs… units of our armed troops in collaboration with the (paramilitary) National Defence Force returned safety and security to Kasab this morning,” an army statement said. Kasab, an Armenian town, is important because it is at the only border crossing with Turkey in sensitive Latakia province, heartland of the Alawite sect from which President Bashar al-Assad hails. On Sunday, a state television reporter broadcast a stand-up from the recaptured border crossing.
