Dr Phillips appeared on Channel 4 News on Saturday, in a report about government jets in Syria bombing rebel-held areas in Damascus to try and seize back parts of the city. He says that the regime has been dealt a “severe blow” if it has lost control of the airport in Damascus. He describes this as a strategy by the rebels to try and counter the government’s air power. Rebels have also been capturing military bases and using captured stockpiles of surface to air missiles.
