The capture of the crossing point is of greater symbolic than strategic significance for the rebels fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad, given the decades-old state of war that has prevailed between Israel and Syria. It does, however, consolidate rebel control over Syria’s border with Israe...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
