Syrian Rebels Hit Assad’s Air Facilities
A monitoring group said the rebels have hit back hard on President Bashar al-Assad airing facilities. 20,000 people have been killed in Assad's 17-month-old uprising. Assad has lost control of rural areas in northern, eastern and southern regions and has resorted to helicopter gunships and fighter jets to alleviate his foes. The aerial bombardment has caused a flood of refugees into neighboring countries.
