AMMAN - Syrian rebel forces on Sunday seized the army's infantry school in the town of Musalmiyeh, 16 km (ten miles) north of the city of Aleppo, a senior military defector based in Turkey and rebel sources inside Syria said.

"This is of big strategic and symbolic importance. The school has ammunition depots and armored formations and it protects the northern gate to Aleppo," Brigadier General Mustafa al-Sheikh told Reuters by phone from the town of Apayden on the border with Syria.
