Anti-regime activists Tuesday said government forces suffered significant losses – including an Iranian general – during a failed campaign to seize territory in southern Syria.It said the dead were from around 10 villages in the area of Busr al-Harir and the nearby rocky region known as the Lajat, where regime forces and paramilitary allies sought on Monday to attack rebel positions and cut off supply lines.The assault began late Sunday evening as government forces pounded the area with artillery before their assault.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights group gave slightly different figures, claiming that 37 rebels were killed along with 22 fighters from the regime side.It acknowledged that the rebels destroyed five tanks and armored personnel carriers.
