AL-BASSIT, Syria: Syrian government forces intensified their shelling on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) of positions seized by rebels in the coastal province of Latakia, focusing on the Kasab border crossing into Turkey, an army officer said. The province is the historic heartland of President Bashar al-Assad’s clan and his Alawite sect of Shiite Islam, and territory the regime will not easily give up.
