Battle for Syrian airbase

**EDIT CONTAINS GRAPHIC MATERIAL** REUTERS IS UNABLE TO INDEPENDENTLY VERIFY THE CONTENT OF THIS VIDEO OBTAINED FROM A SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITE PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS SOME CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL. SOUND AS INCOMING. Syrian rebels fighters witness what they say is an airstrike on a military base in Idlib province. The video, which cannot be verified by Reuters, appears to show Taftanaz airbase under heavy fire. A second video from the same area is said to show a bomb falling from a military helicopter on Wednesday (January 9). It breaks up before hitting the ground. A voice behind the camera says it's a cluster bomb - being dropped to fight a rebel siege. More amateur video from the same day appears to show rebels gathered inside a building at the airport. They surround an armoured personnel carrier - and the body of a government soldier. Taftanaz is a key military airbase in northern Syria and has seen fierce fighting as rebels attempt to gain ground. Government forces have increasingly used airpower to bombard opposition fighters.
