Assad's Regime Regaining Ground in Syrian War

Ad Feedback

President Bashar Assad's regime appears to be gaining power in the Syrian civil war. The army announced Wednesday the capture of the strategic town of Qusair near the Lebanese border. 

This comes only one day after France and Britain confirmed the use of chemical weapons in the war.

Over the past few months the Syrian army has been steadily moving in on the rebels in key battleground areas. In a statement on state TV, the Syrian armed forces said they hope their latest victory will send a "clear message to all those participating in the aggression against Syria."

Since the uprising against Assad, rebels have controlled Qusair. The town protected their supply line to Lebanon, just 10 km (about 5 miles) away.

Experts say its capture has helped to shift the balance of power in Assad's favour.

Syrian state television said Assad's army "restored security and peace" after dismantling "terrorist networks" that were operating in the town.
