Intense battle between Syrian forces and rebels near Lebanon border

Syrian forces have battled rebels in the central province of Homs near the border with Lebanon as part of a counter-offensive aimed at regaining control of territory around the country and along strategic border areas.

On Friday, April 12 troops clashed with rebels on the edges of the Homs province along the Lebanese border.

The border area is strategically important to both sides fighting in Syria’s civil war and battles there have been frequent in past weeks, particularly in and around the town of Qusair in Homs province.
