[February 14, 2013]
Syrian activists say rebels have captured a town and a nearby oil field after a three-day battle with regime forces in the energy-rich northeast.
The director of the Britain-based activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdul-Rahman, said the rebels captured the town of Shadadah in the Hasaka province on Thursday.
The fighters also took control of most of a nearby oil field, although there was still sporadic gunfire in the area, Abdul-Rahman said.
