Syria denies report of seized army airport

World Bulletin / News Desk 

Syrian state television denied claims by oppositions that they had taken over an army airport in southern Syria along the border with Jordan on Thursday.

A news flash said the army had so far repelled three attacks on the outskirts of the al-Thala airport which rebels had said they seized in a renewed offensive.

The loss of the airport would compound setbacks for President Bashar al Assad in the area after losing a nearby military base this week.
