Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) Artillery and Rockets Regiment has launched a barrage of “ground-to-ground” rockets at the Hama airbase, the terrorist group’s news network, Iba’a’, announced on May 24.
A military source in HTS told Iba’a that an ammo depot in the eastern part of the airbase was destroyed as a result of the rocket attack. However, pro-government sources denied this, saying that the attack didn’t cause in any loses.
This was the second attack on the Hama airbase during the last 72 hours. On May 22, unknown militants launched an armed drones swarm at the airbase, but the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) were able to intercept them all.
The Hama airbase is one of three key air fields in central Syria. The airbase is hosing several squadrons of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF). Some Russian units are also deployed there.
These HTS provocations could force the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to resume its military operation in northern Hama in the upcoming few days.
