Syria opposition urges all rebels to join Qusayr fight


Acting opposition chief George Sabra on Wednesday urged rebels across Syria to "rush to the rescue" of rebel stronghold Qusayr under assault by regime troops backed by Lebanon's Hezbollah fighters.

"Revolutionary battalions and Free Syrian Army, rush to the rescue of Qusayr and Homs," Sabra said in a statement, urging brigades around the country to send forces and weapons, "however small."
