Nusra Front in Syria take last army base in Idlib
Al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate has seized control of the last military base held by the regime in the northwestern province of Idlib, a monitoring group said on Wednesday.
Al-Nusra Front and allied Islamist groups had captured nearly all of the Abu Duhur military airport after a siege that lasted two years, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Syrian state television also announced “the retreat of the army... which had protected the airport during a two-year-siege”.
Rebel forces had seized the entrance to the airport and several positions on its outskirts in late August in an advance that began with suicide bombers on motorbikes.
The so-called “Army of Conquest”, a collection of Islamist and militant forces, captured the Idlib provincial capital in March and has since driven Syria's military from most of the province.
