Assad Seen As Losing N. Syria
ANKARA [MENL] -- The regime of President Bashar Assad, amid its onslaught of
Sunni rebels, appears to be losing control over northern Syria.
Opposition sources said Assad's military and security forces were
disappearing from most of northern Syria. They said rebel elements,
including those linked to the Free Syrian Army, have taken
over large parts of the countryside in northern provinces near the borders
with Iraq and Turkey.
