Well then. Less than a week after Syrian government air defenses shot down a Turkish RF-4 Phantom recconnaisance jet, Syrian rebels appear to have seiezed a government radar station.
The video below, apparently filmed on June 26, shows Syrian rebels combing through the ruins of a freshly captured radar site in the hills around Idilb, which lies about 10–15 miles away from Syria’s Border with Turkey. WHo knows what kind of intelligence they were able to glean from the base or if they were able to hold the radar installation, unlike this surface-to-air missile site.
This comes as rumors, emphasis on the word rumors, circulate that NATO special operations troops are beginning to covertly make their way into Syria.
