If it is recaptured, the airport will be "the first military base in the hands of the regime in Idlib province", said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman. FSA rebels and the Nusra Front had been reported to have been fighting. The Syrian army, supported by Iran-backed militias and Russian air power, began an offensive in late October in Hama province.

The regime's goal is to retake the southeast of the province in order to secure a route between Damascus and second city Aleppo, both under its control, according to the Observatory.

Syrian troops and allied forces absorbed the attack and regained control of some positions they had withdrawn from, it said. A Syrian military source denied this and dismissed rebel talk of a counter attack as propaganda.

Several militant groups, including Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham, launched an attack Thursday against military forces advancing toward the strategic Abu Dhuhur air base in the northwestern province and captured several villages.

Alabama-UCF among 10 biggest national title discords of last 25 years
A future meeting of the teams would do nothing to change the outcome of 2017, but it'd still be fun, and fun things are good. All of this was established before the Knights went out and beat the Auburn Tigers, staking a legitimate claim to the title.

Idlib province is nearly entirely held by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, a jihadist outfit dominated by Al-Qaeda's former Syrian affiliate.

Now, an intense military showdown is taking place in the countryside of Idlib and Hama, a military source told Xinhua, adding that it is hard for the rebels to capture over 120 towns taken by the army in both Hama and Idlib since the Syrian army unleashed their attack in both countrysides two weeks ago.

The ministry concluded by saying that France, whose people have suffered from the terrorism, should have its diplomats take clear stances regarding terrorism.

Almost 100,000 people have been displaced since early December by fighting in northwestern Syria, where the regime is waging an offensive against jihadis, the United Nations said on Wednesday.
