The governor of Homs whose province includes Qusair says his country will be what he called 'the graveyard of global terror'.
 
''Wherever terrorism goes and wherever it escapes, the footsteps of the Syrian army will follow it along with the honorable patriotic people, to put an end to terrorism and make Syria the graveyard of global terror.''
 
Syrian government forces and their Lebanese Hezbollah allies have seized control of the town.
 
A local opposition group says more than 500 rebels died in the fighting. A thousand more were wounded.
 
Qusair lies on a cross-border supply route with Lebanon.
 
Its capture secures a vital corridor linking Damascus to the coastal heartland of President Bashar al-Assad's minority Alawite sect.
