@BLACKEAGLE can you tell me who are the groups that joined the terrorist organizations. You know I don't believe everything I read. Since you are very much informed please shed some light on this issue if you don't mind.

Surely Gill Rosenberg knew the risk of going to Syria and fighting against Isis, she's very brave to volunteer in such an I risk situation, we all know all notoriously brutal Isis can be, I just can't make any sense why someone would put themselves in a place so volatile, it could be a crusade, passion a just cause, whatever the reason she's now a prisoner and who knows what they'll do with her, I pray that she makes it out of there alive.

100 killed in week of clashes in south Syria: monitor

Sunday, 15 February 2015

Nearly 100 fighters on both sides have been killed in a week of fighting in southern Syria between regime forces and rebels, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Saturday.

The army, backed by fighters from Lebanon’s powerful Shiite group Hezbollah, began an offensive at the beginning of the week in Daraa, the province bordering Israel that was the cradle of the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.

Regime forces had indicated that the operation was aimed at “breaking the band of territory (the rebels) are trying to create” along the border.

At least 50 rebels were killed and 43 soldiers, members of Hezbollah, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and Syrian pro-regime militia, according to the Britain-based monitor, which has a network of civilian, medical and military sources across Syria.

The Observatory also said 10 soldiers had been executed after being accused of collaborating with rebels in Daraa by giving them information about military movements.

“Hezbollah doesn’t have a lot of confidence in the Syrian army because there have been several cases of soldiers giving the rebels information,” Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

His group said Hezbollah, which is reported to have some 5,000 fighters in Syria, is leading the regime offensive in the south.

The rebels and their al-Nusra Front jihadist allies have been making advances in southern provinces that are strategic because of their proximity to Damascus, Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Since the start of October 2013, rebel forces have controlled a band of territory in the sector along the border with Jordan.

Rebels capture 32 Syrian troops and allied gunmen in Aleppo

BEIRUT (AP) — Rebels in Syria have captured 32 soldiers and pro-government gunmen near the northern city of Aleppo, where fighting is raging as the two sides try to grab new territory ahead of a possible truce, activists said Thursday.

The fighting comes as U.N. envoy Staffan de Mistura is trying to broker a truce for war-ravaged Aleppo, Syria's largest city. On Tuesday he said Syrian President Bashar Assad has expressed willingness to suspend bombing of Aleppo for six weeks.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Aleppo-based activist Ahmad Hamed said the troops were seized in the village of Ratyan after it was retaken by the rebels on Wednesday. More than 170 fighters have been killed from both sides in the clashes, according to the Observatory.

An amateur video posted online showed some 28 men in military uniforms sitting on the floor inside a room. The men, who included at least two wounded, were then asked to stand up and leave the room one by one under the watch of rebels.

The video appeared genuine and corresponded to other Associated Press reporting of the capture and fighting in the area north of Aleppo.

On Thursday, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders (MSF) urged all parties to facilitate the evacuation of people wounded in the clashes, which it said had triggered a new wave of displaced families trying to reach the Turkish border to seek shelter.

It said medical staff were forced to evacuate an MSF facility on the outskirts of Aleppo because of the worsening insecurity.

"Our paramount concern is that the clashes block the only road open between Aleppo and the northern border with Turkey, making it almost impossible to run ambulance services and provide medical and humanitarian assistance to the people trapped by war in eastern Aleppo," said Raquel Ayora, MSF director of operations.

The Observatory said rebels also recaptured the village of Hardatnein on Thursday, two days after it was taken by government forces. The Observatory and Hamed said intense clashes are taking place outside a third village, Bashkoy, which was also taken by the government on Tuesday.

State-run Syrian TV reported that troops are still advancing in the north, adding that Syrian opposition fighters are coming from Turkey to take part in the battles near Aleppo.

The Observatory said 90 troops and pro-government gunmen, in addition to 81 rebels, have been killed since the fighting began on Tuesday.

In Geneva, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Raad al-Hussein urged Syrian authorities Thursday to release all those held by government forces and pro-government groups. Some detainees have been held for years.

The High Commissioner estimated the number of people in Syria who have been held at some point or other in government and intelligence detention facilities to range from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands since the crisis began in March 2011.

"I urge the Syrian Government to immediately release all those who have been jailed for peaceful expression of their views and to ensure that all those detained are accorded their full due process rights," Zeid said.

Army kills infiltrators on Syria border
by JT | Feb 24, 2015 | 22:40

AMMAN — The Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF) on Tuesday night destroyed a truck that illegally crossed into Jordan, killing two armed men who were onboard, according to a JAF official.

The two attempted to cross the border at 6:30pm at high speed, and JAF personnel fired warning shots to stop them, but they did not respond and illegally drove into Jordanian territory, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported, quoting the official.

No further details were available.
