Three days after their capture of Base 46, a sprawling army base in northern Syria, rebels dragged out the last corpses from ruined buildings Wednesday and gathered the booty of arms and ammunition. Defected General Mohammed Ahmed al-Faj, who commanded the assault, hailed the capture of Base 46 as 'one of our biggest victories since the start of the revolution' against President Bashar al-Assad and his government forces.
