Syrian rebels, including Al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front fighters, have fired hundreds of rockets and mortar shells on two besieged Shiite-majority villages, Fuaa and Kafraya, in the northwestern province of Idlib, killing at least seven people and injuring hundreds more. Fighting continued Tuesday around the two villages between a rebel force led by Nusra and Lebanese Hizballah fighters.
