SYRIA-CONFLICT

A member of the Syrian National Defence Forces (NDF), an armed unit of volunteers loyal to President Bashar al-Assad operating under Syrian army command, makes a phone call at a checkpoint at the entrance to the village of Ghassaniyeh in the countryside of the rebel city of Qusayr on May 11, 2013. The area has been a strategic boon to Syrian rebels, who used it as a base from which to block the main road from Damascus to the coast, impeding military movement and supply chains. The regime has made recapturing Qusayr a key objective. AFP PHOTO/JOSEPH EID (Photo credit should read JOSEPH EID/AFP/Getty Images)
