Abu Zhuhoor Air Base:  Desperate for any accomplishment, the Nusra terrorists tried once again to invade this large airbase, but, were pummeled by the very well-armed defense forces inside.  It did not stop there, however, according to our sources, the colonel in charge ordered his forces to pursue the defeated vermin around the perimeter and to the village by the same name.  They did more than merely pursue; they killed 44 Nusra rats, most of whom were non-Syrians:
