BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebels have allegedly handed over a strategic airbase in the Idlib Governorate to the jihadist forces.

According to opposition activists via social media, the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front has transferred the Taftanaz Airbase to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham after an agreement was reached between the two rebel groups.

Neither the National Liberation Front nor Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has released a statement confirming the transfer of the Taftanaz Airbase.

Previously, the Taftanaz Airbase, located near the provincial capital of Idlib, was captured by the jihadist rebels during their 2013 Idlib offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
