Syria: A video was released which showed that the Syrian rebels attacked a key airbase of Taftanz, in an attempt to gain control of it, as per a BBC report on Saturday.

The airbase lies in the northern region, and the move can prove vital as it is located between Aleppo and Damascus.

The video footage showed rebels attacking with multiple rocket launchers and other weapons. Several brigades of the Free Syrian Army and also the radical Islamist al-Nusra Front were reportedly part of this operation, as per a report.

The timing of the attack has raised concerns as it comes ahead of a crucial opposition meet in Qatar.
