Syria: Syrian regime troops break ISIS siege of major air base in Aleppo
Syrian regime army forces broke a siege imposed by militants of the Islamic State (ISIS) on a key military air base in Aleppo, a military source said on Tuesday.
The Kweyris air base, a major military base for Syrian regime troops in the northern province of Aleppo, has been under ISIS siege for more than a year.
Dozens of pro-regime forces broke into the air base after fiere battles with ISIS militants.
“We were finally able to break this barbaric siege on Kweyris airport,” a spokesman for the Syrian army told ARA News in Aleppo.
