AMMAN - Syrian army helicopter bombardment killed 16 rebels in the southern Hauran Plain, a strategic region that links Damascus with Jordan, where fighting has intensified in the last several days, opposition sources said on Friday.

The significant loss on the rebel side came after fighters attacked an army roadblock on Thursday near the town of Busra al-Harir and were pursued from the air, the sources said, adding that army artillery started also shelling the town in the last hour.
