In this image made from amateur video released by Free Lattakia and accessed Tuesday, June 12, 2012, purports to show Syrians standing on a U.N. observers vehicle preventing them from entering Haffa, Syria. The mountainous Haffa region is one of several areas where government forces are battling rebels for control in escalating violence. Recovering it is particularly important to the regime because the town is about 20 miles (30 kilometers) from President Bashar Assad's hometown of Kardaha in Latakia province.
