Syria Rebels Seize Major Army Base

Rebels in Syria say they have captured a major army base in the south of the country.
The Southern Front, an alliance of rebel groups, announced that the base, known as Brigade 52, was "liberated" in an attack on Tuesday morning.
The base, outside the town of Harak, is one of the largest in Deraa province.
Officials have not commented, but if confirmed its fall would be the latest in a string of defeats suffered by the government in the past three months.
