A faction of Syrian opposition forces captured a regime infantry base in the northern city of Aleppo on Sunday, as forces battling to topple President Bashar al-Assad advanced on the country’s largest city.
The base was the second major army installation taken by Syrian fighters in the city in a week. Its fall is the latest blow to the regime.
A statement by the al-Tawheed Brigade said fighters “fully liberated” the military facility in Aleppo on Saturday. It was posted on al-Tawheed’s official website on Sunday.
The complex, known as Hanano Barracks, includes an army base, a recruiting center and a military school.
