    Al-Nusra Front and allied terrorist fighters captured the northwest Syrian town of Kinsabba near the Turkish border, a Syrian militia source told RIA Novosti on Friday.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) – The source said foreign mercenaries deployed earlier from across the Turkish border took part in the attack.

    "Numerous terrorist groups attacked the army and militia positions at 4:00 a.m. [01:00 GMT]. The assault came from settlements on the border and Idlib province. The army and us sustained losses. We were forced to regroup and are now preparing a counterattack," the source said.
