Watch these Islamist rebels hang out in the Mediterranean

Jihadist rebels have reached the Mediterranean Sea, close to the city of Kasab and the Turkish border. In this video, we see fighters taking a break by the ocean.

Syria’s opposition fighters seized a Mediterranean coastal village Tuesday as they pushed to consolidate their presence in a key regime bastion near the Turkish border, a monitoring group said.

The capture of Samra in Latakia province comes a day after rebels seeking to topple President Bashar al-Assad seized the area around Kasab, the last government-held crossing post with Turkey.
