Heroes FSA Liberated Airport 8


Syrian rebels armed with truck-mounted anti-aircraft guns and tanks captured from the government attacked the Taftanaz air field near Aleppo on Wednesday, seeking to destroy attack jets and helicopters housed there.
Video posted on YouTube by activists showed rebels firing, tracer bullets arcing toward the air field, scattered explosions and some damaged helicopters. The extent of the damage and the casualties suffered were unclear, though a unit of fighters known as the Flag of the Umma Brigade - led by Libyan Mahdi al-Harati, who joined the uprising in Syria earlier this year -claimed to have suffered a casualty.
Videos below show some of the attack:
