Syrian Mujahideen capture air base in Aleppo

Publication time: 12 February 2013, 23:08

Mujahideen fighters in Syria have seized an Alawite military air base and captured warplanes in the north of the country, as part of an assault on strategic northern targets.

In Tuesday's capture of the military airport at al-Jarah in Aleppo province, the fighters also seized for the first time a fleet of deployable warplanes including Russian MiG fighter jets.

During their assault on the airport, the Mujahideen killed, injured or imprisoned 40 Satan's troops. The remaining troops fled, leaving behind ammunition and warplanes.

Soon afterwards, the Alawite air force used fighter jets to bombard the airport in hopes of dislodging the fighters. Russian-made airplanes also carried out raids near the international airport which has come under a Mujahideen assault.

Mujahideen in the north shifted their focus from city battles to the capture of military airports and bases.

They are important because they are an instant source of ammunition and supplies, and because their capture means putting out of action the warplanes used to bombard Muslims,.

While Mujahideen have seen victories in northern and eastern Syria, they have yet to take a major city.

The capture of al-Jarrah airport came just over a month after fighters overran Alawite Taftanaz airbase, the largest in northern Syria.
