Syrian government loyalists have withdrawn from a major air base in northwestern Syria after being besieged for more than two years by Islamist-led insurgents, Reuters reported on Wednesday.
Abu al-Duhur military airport, located in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib, was one of the last remaining government holdouts in the region. According to a group monitoring the conflict, the Syrian military had been completely driven out of the province following the fall of the base.
