Syrian forces have recaptured a northern military air base that had been besieged by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) since 2013, foreign media reports.

The government had launched a major offensive to reach the airbase on October 16.

ISIL seized new territories in Aleppo last month, pushing out rival rebels and leading the government to intensify its operations in the area.
