Syria - FSA takes control of the Syrian-Turkish Border Checkpoint of Alhawa (7/19/12)

The Free Syrian Army is taking more and more control of the northern parts of Syria especially after the news of the bombing in damascus defence ministry. A direct result of the bombing was the immediate defection of around 20 high and mid ranking generals. It also seems as if the SAA has started deserting their posts especially in the northern parts of Syria or maybe they've simply been relocated to enforce their tight grip on damascus.

Syrian Intelligence building stormed.
