Abu al-Duhur Military Airbase (sometimes spelled Abu ad-Duhur) is a major airbase of the Syrian Arab Air Force. The airbase is located about 5 km east of Abu al-Duhur, in Idlib Governorate. After surrounding the airbase for two years, and killing at least 56 government soldiers in an early morning attack, the al-Nusra Front took control of the airbase in September 2015. A video showed a number of out-of-service fighter jets for several years  mostly pulled to the side of the aprons and rocket launchers. On 20 January 2018, the Syrian army and allies recaptured the air base.
