The Syrian Army and Hezbollah are advancing on the village of Flita near the Lebanon border, where rebels had fled following the fall of the Syrian city of Yabroud, Hezbollah sources and an activist group told The Daily Star.Earlier this month, the Syrian Army and Hezbollah took Yabroud after months of battles for the strategically-located city, as it acted as a conduit for rebel supplies from Lebanon.Syrian planes bombed rebel positions in the coastal province of Latakia, where opposition fighters have been making gains while battling government troops for six straight days, the Observatory said. A field commander speaking to reporters in Misherfeh said the army was making progress against the fighters.The Local Coordination Committees, a Syria-based opposition group that also documents the conflict, reported two government airstrikes on the strategic post.
