Syria Government Forces Take Village Near Lebanese Border

Syrian government forces seized a village in the central Homs province on Saturday,as part of a push for control of areas along the Lebanese border. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the village of al-Zara, west of the city of Homs, fell after "heavy clashes" between government and rebel forces.The victory gave government forces control over a route connecting central Syria to the Mediterranean coast and which had been used as "a primary route for terrorist groups coming from Lebanese territory to neighboring areas to carry out criminal operations."The number of casualties was not immediately clear.
