Saturday, 25 April 2015 09:17 AM EDT

BEIRUT — Islamist insurgents including al-Qaida's wing in Syria Nusra Front seized the strategic northwestern Syrian town of Jisr al-Shughour on Saturday, for the first time in the four year conflict.

Syrian state media said the army had redeployed to the town's surroundings "to avoid civilian casualties".

Opposition fighters and the Syrian Observatory for Human rights said that the town was now totally controlled by the insurgents.
