On Friday morning, the Islamist rebels from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” – alongside their allies from Jund Al-Aqsa – executed over 40 prisoners from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces (NDF) after they captured this isolated Abu Al-Dhuhour Military Airport inside the Idlib Governorate’s eastern countryside last week.

These executions were carried outside of the Abu Al-Dhuhour Military Airport and was followed by the militants from Jabhat Al-Nursa posing with the deceased soldiers.

Jabhat Al-Nusra was given a warning from the Syrian Government to not harm these captured soldiers; however, the terrorist group did not honor their previous statement in which they asserted that they would not execute these soldiers.

The SAA and NDF soldiers at the Abu Al-Dhuhour Military Airport were under siege for more than two years and completely cutoff from any government supply line.

According to a military source that was inside the base, the majority of the embattled soldiers were able to flee the Abu Al-Dhuhour Military Airport before it was overrun by Jabhat Al-Nusra and company.

A total of 63 soldiers have reportedly arrived to a Syrian Army checkpoint in northern Hama after their arduous journey through Jihadist controlled territory inside the Idlib Governorate – over 40 soldiers are still missing.
