IDLIB, Syria – The Syrian Army, led by the elite Tiger Forces units, are now only 2.5km from Abo Dhuhr military airport in Idlib province.
To demonstrates the rapid advancement the Syrian Army has made, only three days ago the Syrian Army was 15km from the air base.
Details of some of the advancements made today by the Syrian Army against Al-Qaeda affiliated forces can be read here.
Once the airbase is secured, it is expected that a pocket will be made to try and trap Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra fighters or force them to rapidly escape.
With the airbase secured, it is expected that sorties will be conducted which will be devastating for jihadist forces as Syrian jets will be able to restock and refuel at a much faster pace, allowing Syrian forces to continually smash terrorist positions.
