Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

Ac­tivists said rebels in the north clashed with government troops near mil­i­tary bases in the prov­inces of Idlib and Aleppo and seized an oil pump­ing sta­tion in al-Raqqa. The sta­tion re­ceives crude oil from the nearby province of Has­sakha and pumps it to one of Syria’s two oil re­finer­ies in Homs, said Rami Ab­dul-Rah­man, who heads the Syr­ian Ob­ser­va­tory for Hu­man Rights.

The Ob­ser­va­tory said rebels stormed a government air base in the area of Tel Has­sir south of Aleppo, while government fighter jets launched deadly airstrikes near Aleppo, Hama and in a num­ber of Da­m­as­cus sub­urbs.

Ac­tivists re­ported two car bombs in the Yar­mouk district of Da­m­as­cus, where most res­i­dents are Pales­tinian refugees.
