BEIRUT —

An Islamist faction of Syrian rebels says its fighters have taken control of an infantry base in the northern city of Aleppo.

A statement by the al-Tawheed Brigade says the rebels, fighting to topple President Bashar Assad, "fully liberated" the military facility in Syria's largest city on Saturday.

Al-Tawheed Brigade is one of the largest rebel groups operating in Aleppo, which has been a major front in the civil war since July.

The statement was posted on al-Tawheed's official website on Sunday. It said the brigade's commander was killed in the battle for the base, which is the second major military installation in Aleppo the rebels overran in a week.
