In this photo released on June 5, 2013 by the Syrian official news agency SANA, a Syrian soldier loyal to President Bashar Assad aims his weapon near the Homs-Damascus highway, central Syria. Syrian troops and their Lebanese Hezbollah allies captured a strategic border town Wednesday after a grueling three-week battle, dealing a severe blow to rebels and opening the door for President Bashar Assad's regime to seize back the country's central heartland. The regime triumph in Qusair, which Assad's forces had bombarded for months without success, demonstrates the potentially game-changing role of Hezbollah in Syria's civil war. (AP Photo/SANA)
