Syrian Army retaliates, Israel to turn refugees away
The suicide bombing that claimed the lives of three members of Syrian President Assad’s inner circle has been met with an expected retaliation. Syrian troops have been pounding rebel hideouts.
The fierce battles in the capital of Damascus is raising questions, however, about the mortality of the Assad regime.
Not seen publicly since the suicide bombing: Assad, who it is now speculated may have fled to a Syrian coastal town.
Meanwhile, the conflict is affecting Israel, whose defense minister, Ehud Barak, says refugees will not be permitted into the Golan Heights, which Israel controls.
