Assad clan’s center Latakia gets first taste of Scud rocket fire

The Islamic Army and Jaish al-Fatah – two rebel militias associated with the Nusra Front – are closing in on the western Syrian port town of Latakia, a stronghold of the Assad clan. For the first time in the war, Latakia is under Scud B ground-to-ground rocket fire. In the northwest, the Islamic State has launched an offensive on the villages between Aleppo and the key road hub town of Azaz in an effort to cut the highway from Turkey to Aleppo.
