Conflicting reports have surfaced over the last 12 hours in regards to the status of the Mennagh Military Airport in the northern Aleppo countryside, as social media activists from both the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) and the Islamist rebels have stated they control this strategic base.

Yesterday, social media activists in support of the YPG claimed that the Mennagh Military Airport was fully under their control after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah.

However, no video footage or photos were released by the YPG or their allies from the Mennagh Military Airport to confirm these assertions that went viral on several social media platforms.

The following morning, the social media activists from the Syrian Opposition confirmed that they still control the Mennagh Military Airport; however, they added that the YPG was on the verge of seizing the entire village bordering the base.

After reviewing the information from both sides; it is safe to assume that the Mennagh Military Airport is still under the Islamist rebels.
