The coastal area near the Armenian Christian town of Kasab is seen March 28, 2014. After months of setbacks in central Syria, Islamist rebels launched an offensive last Friday into the Latakia region, taking the border crossing and the Armenian Christian village of Kasab. The border crossing at Kasab they seized had been the last point of entry from Turkey into territory fully under control of Assad’s forces, since most of the northern border region is already under rebel control.
