Syria: Insurgents recapture villages on Syrian plain vital to Assad

BEIRUT – Insurgents have regained control of several villages in northwest Syria from government forces and have advanced beyond them, edging closer to a coastal stronghold of President Bashar al-Assad, a monitoring group and other sources said on Sunday.

The insurgents launched a counter-offensive after government forces, backed by allied militant groups, last week recaptured the villages on the Sahl al-Ghab plain, which lies close to the city of Hama and is crucial to the defense of coastal mountains that are the heartland of Assad’s minority Alawite sect. ∞∞∞∞∞ SEE MORE ∞∞∞∞∞
