The coolest place on the internet, according to this tagline.

Syrian rebels continue to gain ground in their war against President Bashar al-Assad and those forces that remain loyal to the Assad regime.

  • Taqba Dam The country’s largest dam has been seized by rebel forces, giving President Bashar al-Assad’s opposition control over the country’s largest source of hydro-electric power.
  • Damascus The Assad regime has been forced to send tanks to defend loyalist positions in the district of Jobar, in an attempt to halt rebel momentum, following a series of opposition victories which allowed the rebel forces to push closer towards the city’s center. 
  • Next steps Negotiations finally appear to be considered a legitimate option by the Assad regime. According to the Syrian government, national reconciliation minister Ali Haidar will meet with the head of the Syrian National Council to discuss the country’s future. source
