Syrian jets blast Syrian rebels fleeing Al Qusayr
Western sources report that Syrian aerial bombardments are decimating the rebels in flight from al-Qusayr after its capture by Syrian army and Hizballah units was completed Wednesday. Many are being killed. Syrian troops have so far denied medical teams access to the 1,200 wounded trapped in the town by days of fighting. The Syrian high command said that after smashing the rebels in al Qusayr, its iron fist will crush every other rebel position in the country.
