WASHINGTON - Rebel fighters battling Syrian President Bashar Assad are making territorial gains that will eventually become "safe havens" and provide a base for further operations against government forces, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday.

"We have to work closely with the opposition, because more and more territory is being taken and it will eventually result in a safe haven inside Syria that will then provide a base for further actions by the opposition," Clinton told reporters during an appearance with Haiti's visiting prime minister.
