BEIRUT: Syrian government forces, assisted by Hezbollah, have retaken the village of Kasab on the border with Turkey and in the coastal heartland of President Bashar Assad's Alawite minority sect, an activist group and state media said.
The withdrawal of most rebel forces from the village - including some linked to Al-Qaeda - is another blow to an opposition that has been undermined by recent gains by Assad's forces and by infighting.
