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 Syriaâ€™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.
