Syr­ian forces sur­round rebels near Le­banese bor­der:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Syr­ian elite forces backed by Hezbol­lah fight­ers be­sieged a rebel-held moun­tain re­sort near the bor­der with Le­banon on Satur­day un­der the cover of in­tense airstrikes by Syria’s air force, ac­tivists and of­fi­cial media out­lets re­ported. The cap­ture of Zabadani would tighten Hezbol­lah’s grip on Syr­ian ter­ri­to­ries bor­der­ing Le­banon and strengthen the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment’s con­trol over of the Beirut-Damascus high­way.
