Syrian freedom fighters killed at least 18 Assad soldiers in the northwestern town of Saraqeb, in Idlib province, by setting off a car bomb outside a military position and then attacked it. On Wednesday the details of the operation were still sketchy, and it is impossible not say whether the car bombing was a Martyrdom attack.
There were 70 to 100 Assad soldiers there when the attack occurred. Twenty soldiers escaped, and clashes are still going on.
Outside Aleppo, Syria's second city, fighting erupted at dawn in the Nayrab area, around 5km from the airport, which remained fully operational.
Over the past several weeks, freedom fighters have taken to attacking military airfields in an attempt to prevent them from being used for launching air raids while commercial facilities have been left alone.
However, this is not the first time there has been fighting around Aleppo airport, which serves the country's commercial capital, where the Assad army shelled a string of neighborhoods.
Elsewhere, a Muslim boy and a girl were killed and dozens of civilians wounded when the Assad army shelled the liberated village of Latamneh in Hama province.
Also in Hama, eight bodies were found in farmlands in Halfaya village, following a massacre by Alawite forces. The number of dead was expected to rise as many people were reported missing.
