Rebels fighting in southern Syria will not cooperate militarily with Al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, Al-Nusra Front, a spokesman said Wednesday.Essam al-Rayes' comments come after tensions between local rebel groups and Nusra Front over the capture of a border crossing between Syria and Jordan.Ties between the groups and Nusra Front have been strained since the April 2 takeover of the Nasib border crossing.Syrian rebel forces remain prominent in the south, unlike in the north, where Nusra Front and ISIS have seized large swathes of territory.
