Rebel groups in southern Syria pressed forward Wednesday with their offensive and targeted a military airport on the edge of the Druze-majority province of Swaida.The campaign came as Nusra Front militants in northwest Idlib province clashed with Druze residents of the village of Qalb Lozeh, killing 20 of them, according to several anti-regime activist groups.Balous issued a statement urging the Druze to mobilize to defend the province but said the rebels were apparently focused on attacking the Thaaleh airport, and not the nearby Druze village of that name.Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt also commented on the developments, calling for a "reconciliation" between the Druze of Swaida and the residents of Deraa province.
