Syria's exiled opposition chief Ahmad Jarba visited Latakia province Tuesday, amid a rebel offensive against the heartland of President Bashar al-Assad's clan and his Alawite sect, his office said.The visit comes a day after Syrian state television said the army recaptured Observatory 45, a strategic hilltop -- a claim contested by activists and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.Jarba's office also said the opposition chief held meetings with members of the rebel operations room for Latakia, and that he stressed "the need for real support" for the opposition fighters in the province.More than 300 fighters on both sides have been killed in the clashes there.
