A coalition of Islamist rebels seized an army base in northwestern Syria at dawn Monday after a suicide bomber from Al-Qaeda's Nusra Front drove a truck packed with explosives into the compound and blew it up.The capture, reported by a rebel commander and social media videos showing militants inside the base, brought the coalition closer to seizing most of Idlib province and moving toward Latakia, the ancestral home of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.At least 53 civilians were killed in air force bombing in the town of Darkoush northwest of Idlib when the air force bombed a busy market place and a center where displaced refugee were taking cover, it said.
