Syrian freedom fighters have captured an air defense base east of Aleppo as illegal Alawite government gangs battled fighters on several fronts across the country.
The air defense Alawite base seized by the freedom fighters was located in al-Tana village by the Koris military airport on the road east from Aleppo to al-Raqqa.
Clashes were also taking place at an Alawite military barracks close to Maarat al-Nuaman, a town on the main highway to the northwestern city of Aleppo, which was seized by liberation forces earlier this week.
Freedom fighters have gone on the offensive killing more than 100 Assad's bloody soldiers in two days.
Fourteen soldiers were exterminated in an attack on an army post in the southern province of Daraa on Friday, a day after the Alawite army suffered 92 losses, the highest daily total for the bloody Assad's military of the 19-month liberation war.
A death toll for Thursday reached more than 260 people, including civilians and fighters on both sides in the capital and the north, west and east.
Meanwhile, Turkey scrambled (got into the air) a fighter jet on Friday after a Syrian helicopter shelled the Syrian town of Azmarin near their common border. The fighter jet took off from Diyarbakir base in the southeast after Alawite regime forces sent a helicopter to shell Azmarin which was liberated by freedom fighters.
On Wednesday, Turkey scrambled jets to force a Syrian plane on its way from Moscow to Damascus to land inside Turkey.
