The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, the al-Nusra Front has won a symbolic victory over Assad’s forces in Alleppo. They have seized the historic Umayyad Mosque.
Rebels seized control of the Umayyad Mosque in Syria’s second city of Aleppo on Thursday after days of fierce clashes that damaged the historic building, a watchdog reported.
Regime troops were forced to withdraw at dawn, taking up positions in buildings around the landmark structure, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
I wonder what Obama has to say about al-Qaeda being decimated?
