Amateur footage appears to show Syrian rebels celebrating the capture of a strategic air base in northern Syria.
Taftanaz is the largest helicopter base in northern Syria and the second largest in the country and its loss further weakens President Bashar al-Assad's grip on the region.
The months-long battle only ended after Islamist units provided reinforcement in early January.
The video could not be verified independently by Reuters due to Syrian media restrictions.
