Syria: Rebels Control Majority Of Air Bases In Rif Dimashq, Free Syrian Army Says

The Free Syrian Army has taken control of the majority of the air defense bases in Rif Dimashq governorate, the area surrounding Damascus, FSA sources said Dec. 6, al-Sharq al-Awsat reported. The rebels seized a military airport between Damascus and Damascus International Airport on Dec. 5 that government forces used to stage helicopter operations, the sources said. The advances have given the rebels control of missile systems and radars, which can be used to monitor and confront the regime's warplanes, sources said. The regime is attempting to push back rebel forces in and near Damascus and maintain a corridor to the Alawite coast while delaying rebel advances in the rest of the country.
