Syria rebels take Iraq border crossing from IS

Beruit – Syrian rebels have seized control of the Syrian side of a major border crossing with Iraq from the Islamic State group, activists said Saturday. The Local Coordination Committees said U.S.-backed fighters from the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front killed one IS fighter and wounded several others in the process of taking the Tanaf border crossing late Friday. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on activists inside Syria, said the FSA fighters crossed into Syria from Jordan to launch the attack.
