The latest development in the Syrian Civil War is seeing the opposition forces battling the regime forces for control of air bases across the country.
ABC, BBC and Yahoo state that the rebels have been targeting the air force. On Saturday rebel forces took over an air defence facility and went on to attack a military airport in eastern Syria.
The rebels accuse the Assad regime of increasingly using his air forces jet fighters and helicopter gunships to bombard opposition entrenchments in major cities across the country.
These developments come as Assad is increasingly relying on air power to cripple his foes in rural parts of the country's north, east and south regions which have fallen under opposition control.
Rebels claim to have damaged several helicopters at an air base in the Idlib province, they also say they managed to shoot down a Syrian Air Force jet fighter and helicopter last week.
