Syria rebels in fresh advance in northwest: NGO

Emergency teams extinguish a fire at the site of a car bomb attack in a regime-held area in Homs on May 25, 2014Syrian rebels made advances on Monday in the war-torn country’s northwest, seizing several army checkpoints as they inched closer towards taking over two major bases, a monitor and activists said. The advance in Idlib province came as Al-Qaeda’s Syria branch, the Al-Nusra Front, claimed responsibility for two car bomb attacks that killed 12 people a day earlier in the central city of Homs. In Idlib, rebels and their jihadist Al-Nusra Front allies took over “the Salam checkpoint west of the town of Khan Sheikhun after fierce battles against regime troops”, the Syrian Observatory for Human Right said. The Syrian Revolution General Commission (SRGC), a network of activists across the country, said the Salam checkpoint was “the last regime position in the Khan Sheikhun area,” in the south of Idlib province.
