Syrian Rebels in Control of Border Area with Israel :: Gatestone Institute

Syrian rebels have taken control of the border with Israel, and are consolidating their presence in the area, according to Israeli defense sources.

One source said that the rebels managed to oust the Syrian military from the area after months of battles, which on occasion saw shells and bullets fired over the border into Israel.

The rebels, according to the source, have spent recent weeks consolidating their shaky control of the border.

The development is one of a growing number of signs that the Assad regime is on its last legs.
