Syrian army kills 62 rebels east of Damascus

Source: Reuters

BEIRUT | Wed Aug 7, 2013 5:32am EDT

(Reuters) - Sixty-two rebel fighters were killed in a Syrian army ambush at dawn on Wednesday near the town of Adra, east of Damascus, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group opposed to President Bashar al-Assad, said.

The state news agency SANA did not give a death toll for the ambush but said the rebels were from the al Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front. It said all the rebels were killed and machineguns and rocket-propelled grenades confiscated.

SANA said the "terrorists" included non-Syrians and the Observatory said that eight rebels were still unaccounted for after the attack, which happened west of an industrial area east of Adra.

Assad's forces have been on the offensive around Damascus after rebels pushed into towns and suburbs on the outskirts of the capital last year. Adra is in the Eastern Ghouta region, which has been besieged by the army for months.

Pay your taxes or lose your license

State warns scofflaws who owe $10G could lose driving privileges


Some 16,000 delinquent taxpayers were put on notice Monday: Pay up or lose your driver's license.

The Department of Taxation and Finance sent the warnings to implement new provisions of law enacted with the state budget. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, authored the proposal.

"Our message is simple: Tax scofflaws who don't abide by the same rules as everyone else are not entitled to the same privileges as everyone else," Cuomo said in a press release.

"These worst offenders are putting an unfair burden on the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers who are hardworking, law-abiding taxpayers," he continued. "By enacting these additional consequences, we're providing additional incentives for the state to receive the money it is owed, and we're keeping scofflaws off the very roads they refuse to pay their fair share to maintain."
