AIRLIFTING SUPPLIES: This leaked video shows regime pilots dropping food supplies from a helicopter into the besieged Menagh Military Airbase in the Aleppo suburbs earlier this week after rebel fighters advanced, gaining control over large parts of it, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
Clashed occurred after rebel fighters [gained] control of the radar building in the airport, which the two sides have been fighting over for months. The base is designated for helicopters and is located in the northern suburbs of Aleppo.
According to the Aleppo News Network, two helicopters were downed earlier this week over Menagh Military Airbase, with the regime renewing its attempts to deliver food to besieged soldiers inside the airport via helicopter, after trying unsuccessfully to do the same on Monday.
