Syrian rebels have taken control of a strategic airbase in Idlib province in the north of the country.
Anti-Assad fighters claim the Free Syrian Army is now in control of the Taftanaz air field after days of fierce fighting with government troops.
Hundreds of rebels have besieged the base since November, but the tide turned when Islamist fighters reinforced them earlier this month.
