The Free Syrian Army on Friday took control of a military housing complex in the Idlib district, where they killed dozens of regime soldiers and destroyed a number of Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFVs).

 

A video posted on YouTube by Mujahedeen said that Idlib’s military barracks was “liberated” by fighters from the Al-Nusra Front, Liwaa al-Tawhid, Liwaa al-Haq, Ahrar al-Sham and Kataeb Ahrar al-Shamal.

 

The rebel fighter speaking in the video claimed that they have destroyed three tanks and killed many soldiers.

 

However, another fighter said in a different video also posted Friday on YouTube that only one tank was destroyed and burned, while another was seized.

 

The same rebel noted that over 50 regime soldiers were murdered in the Binnij military complex east of Idlib.

 

On Thursday, the United States promised "military support" to rebel forces, after President Barack Obama accused Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of using chemical weapons against his people.

 

The FSA has grown from a rag-tag force of military defectors into a popular guerrilla insurgent movement buoyed by civilian recruits, and it can now mobilize thousands of fighters.

 

The rebels have been leading a violent uprising against Assad’s regime, which has so far killed more than 84,000 people since its outbreak in March 2011, according to the watchdog Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    If this is true (if very well might not be since the information is comming from FSA: notorious liars), then there is some serious problems in leadership within the SAA ranks. Or perhaps some traitors. This should not have happened.
