Rebel Groups in Jebel Al-Zawiyah

Download to read offline

Jebel al-Zawiyah is a rebel stronghold that lies 11 kilometers to the west of the highway linking Damascus to Aleppo. It lies 30 km southeast of the Turkish border. The city of Ariha sits along the main road linking Aleppo to Latakia. Rebel groups there are well positioned to deny the regime access to key lines of communication across Syria.
