Rebels claim victory in Syria's al-Bab

Opposition claims army pushed out of what is seen as military's last urban base outside Aleppo city.

    Government forces withdrew from the town of al-Bab, according to rebel forces, who claim it was the army's last urban base in the region outside of Aleppo city.

    The people of al-Bab took a captured government tank on a victory lap around the town after the army fled and its prized military assets were left behind.

    Despite the freeing of the army base, and the capture of the tank, not all threats of violence are over for the town.

    There is still danger in the air, with planes and helicopters flying overhead almost every day.
