Syrian army regains control of strategic town in southSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Wed, 05/08/2013 - 19:21
The Syrian Army has regained control of a strategic town in southern Syria following heavy clashes with foreign-backed militants operating inside Syria.
Reports say the Syrian forces have released the town of Khirbet Ghazaleh on Wednesday from the militants after about two months of clashes. The town is situated near the Jordanian border.
According to the opposition sources, some 1,000 militants withdrew from the town after they lost hope that aids would come from Jordan.
The sources also said that the Syrian Army’s success in the area has raised resentment among militants over what they consider as lack of support from Jordan in their fight against the Syrian government forces.
