Insurgents seize army base, tighten grip in Syria's Idlib province | Reuters

BEIRUT Insurgents seized an army base in northwestern Syria from the military on Tuesday, compounding a series of setbacks for President Bashar al-Assad at the hands of rebel groups believed to have received extra backing from his regional enemies. The capture came as a top aide to Iran's leader met Assad in Damascus and underlined firm Iranian support as the Syrian government faces mounting pressure from insurgents in a four-year-old civil war. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said Syrian troops withdrew from Mastouma military base in Idlib province after heavy clashes with Islamist-led insurgents #Sports #India #Middle East #science #markets #Argentina #Turkey #Latin America #Entertainment #opinion

Syrian TV says Turkey shoots down surveillance drone| Reuters

ISTANBUL/BEIRUT Syrian state media said a surveillance drone was shot down by Turkish military jets on Saturday, which Turkey said had violated its airspace. NATO member Turkey, an outspoken critic of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has a 900-km (560-mile) border with Syria and frequently scrambles jets to its frontier amid concerns aircraft have violated its air space. #Business #Sports #United States #India #China #Middle East #science #Argentina #Turkey #Mexico #opinion

Hezbollah, Syrian army make big gains in border battle| Reuters

BEIRUT Lebanon's Hezbollah and the Syrian army made big advances against insurgents in mountains north of Damascus on Wednesday, Hezbollah and Syrian state media said, shoring up President Bashar al-Assad's grip on a crucial border zone. The gains in the Qalamoun region close to Lebanon against groups including the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front come at a time when Assad has suffered significant defeats elsewhere, notably in Syria's northwest near the Turkish border. Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed Shi'ite group with a powerful militia, has been a vital ally for Assad in the four-year-long conflict that has become a focal point for the struggle between Tehran and Sunni Saudi Arabia that has backed the insurgency. #Syria #Russia #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Turkey #Mexico #opinion
