Syrian pro-government forces recaptured a key rebel-held town in coastal Latakia province Sunday, building on battlefield advances in the area ahead of planned peace talks this week in Geneva between Damascus and Syria's opposition.The Observatory described Rabia as the "second most important base for [rebel] fighters in the northern Latakia countryside" after the town of Salma, which pro-government forces seized earlier this month in one of the most significant advances since Russia joined the fight.At least 63 people, including nine children, died Saturday in airstrikes believed to be carried out by Russian warplanes on the Khasham village in eastern Syria, according to the Observatory. The group has besieged remaining government-held areas of the city since last March and last week launched new attacks.Syrian armed rebel groups said Saturday they held the Syrian government and Russia responsible for any failure of talks.U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday the United States and Turkey were prepared for a military solution against Daesh in Syria should the Syrian government and rebels fail to reach a political settlement.
