Rebels take border crossing

29 Aug, 2014

A Youtube video shows a group of rebels including fighters from Al Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front taking over the Quneitra border crossing on the Syrian side of the border with Israel after a battle with Assad regime forces. A fighter:

We are Al-Nusra fighters. We’ve just liberated the Syrian-Zionist crossing of Quneitra

In the footage, a black al-Nusra banner is seen flying in place of a Syrian flag in the border town, which is visibly damaged by the battle.
