BEIRUT - Insurgents including al-Qaida's wing in Syria Nusra Front on Saturday captured large parts of the northwestern Syrian town of Jisr al-Shughour for the first time in the four year conflict.

Syrian activists and a violence monitoring group said that fighters have pushed inside the town which lies on a road between the coastal city of Latakia and Syria's second city of Aleppo, after days of heavy fighting.

Syria's state television said the army was engaged in "fierce battles in Jisr al-Shughour."
