Video: Suicide bomber rocks Assad’s military air base near Aleppo

Violent clashes erupted between Syrian rebel fighters and government troops following a suicide bomber attack at the Menagh Military air base on Monday.

The suicide bomber carried with him six tons of explosives in an armored vehicle and detonated it at the entrance of the air base, according to a statement by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Videos posted on the internet on Monday showed what appeared to be an attack, followed by an exchange of gunfire between rebels and government troops.

Fighting continues near Aleppo as rebels gained control of several posts previously held by the regime in the country’s once bustling economic capital.
