Fighters of the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) launched dozens of Grad rockets at Hama Airbase on May 25.
The rocket attack was carried out by the Glory Corps, one of several groups that formed the NFL coalition last year. The group said in a press release that the attack was a response to the “regime massacres” in Idlib and its surroundings.
A source from Hama Airbase confirmed to SouthFront that more than 20 rockets landed in the base’s vicinity. However, they didn’t cause any damage or casualties, according to the source. The source clarified that the personnel were prepared for such attacks.
This was the third attack on Hama airbase during this week. A day earlier, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) targeted the airbase with a barrage of rockets. Prior to that, an armed drone swarm attempt to strike targets inside the airbase.
Idlib militants are likely trying to strike Hama Airbase because several Russian military units are deployed there. The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) main operations room in northern Hama is also said to be located inside the airbase.
