BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:25 P.M.) – On Saturday last week, elite troops of the Syrian Arab Army and allied paramilitary groups seized the Abu Duhur military airport from Islamist militants after almost an entire month of non-stop operations in the eastern countryside of Idlib province.

The key units involved in the battle for the airbase have been identified as the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces Division and the pro-government Syrian-Palestinian paramilitary group Liwa al-Quds.

The main rebel faction opposing the advance of Syrian pro-government forces on the Abu Duhur airbase was the Al-Qaeda affiliate group Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) who initially delayed the military operation by a week after launching a powerful but ultimately doomed offensive around the military installation.

Recently, Liwa al-Quds released video footage captured by its media wing over social media showing the militia’s operation alongside the Tiger Forces to capture the area in and near the Abu Duhur military airport.
