Syria denies rebels' control over military airbase in northern Aleppo

DAMASCUS, May 4-- The Syrian troops confronted Saturday the armed rebels trying to storm the Menagh airbase in the country's northern province of Aleppo, killing most of the assailants, the state-run SANA news agency reported.

The troops repelled the attack against the Menagh airbase, causing casualties among the assailants, SANA said, adding that the troops also clashed with rebels at the vicinity of Koerce base, another military airfield in Aleppo, and killed many of the attackers.

Earlier in the day, media reports said that a large number of armed rebels unleashed a wide-scale attack against Menagh, adding that several factions and battalions of the rebels partook in the attack.

Reports said the rebels have succeeded to storm the airbase from different directions and taken control over several parts of it.

The pro-government Sham FM radio citing sources at the base, however, denied the rebels' control over the base, saying that the troops managed to repel the attack but the leader of the airbase, Brigade Mahmoud Ali, and two of his escorts were killed in the battle.

The airbase has recently emerged as a major target of the Syrian opposition in the ongoing conflict.

It has been besieged by rebels since January.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded.

Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
