Syrian forces repelled an Islamic State attempt to take control over the strategic Kweiris airbase in the eastern part of Allepo province, sputnik news reports.

The attack began with suicide car bombs to retake al-Nejjarah village in the northern parts of the Kweiris airbase from the Syrian Army, FARS News reported.

The army responded immediately and destroyed the car bombs before they reached the village.

Then, the terrorists were forced to withdraw from the area after sustaining damage and some sporadic conflicts.

Nejjarah village was cleared of militants earlier this week by the Syrian Army and popular forces.
