Syrian rebels hunt for snipers after attacking the municipality building in Aleppo
The Syrian government says it has repelled a major rebel attack on an air base near the northern city of Aleppo.
State TV showed vehicles with mounted machine guns and other equipment seized from the Rasm al-Abboud base attack, reports the BBC.
This was one of several air bases which have come under attack in recent days, as opposition fighters try to halt the regime's use of helicopters and military jets to support ground forces.
About 100 people were killed in fighting on Friday, activists said.
Battles have continued in Aleppo, in suburbs of Damascus and in other parts of the country.
It is impossible to independently verify the claims, as reporting by foreign journalists is severely restricted in Syria.
State TV has been leading its bulletins with a report from the Rasm al-Abboud air force college, which it said had come under heavy attack by rebel fighters.
The pro-rebel Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and other activists said government troops had been killed and wounded in the attack, the Associated Press reported.
There are also reports by activists of prolonged fighting at the Abu Zohur air base in Idlib province.
And another air force building in the eastern city of Deir al-Zour was seized, its commander killed and at least 16 personnel captured, the observatory said.
State media, meanwhile, has reported a string of other victories scored over what it called "armed terrorist groups".
However, the BBC's Jim Muir in neighbouring Lebanon says the government seems no closer to winning control of Aleppo or taming the rebellious suburbs around the capital Damascus.
The fighting came as Syrian Prime Minister Wail al-Halqi met Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Both assured him of Iran's continuing support in fighting what it agrees is a US and Israeli-backed campaign to undermine Syria because of its resistance to Israel.
The meetings came during a summit of the Non-Aligned Movement in Tehran.
Iran has been solid in its support for the Assad government.
But days earlier at the summit, Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi described the Syrian uprising as a "revolution against an oppressive regime", prompting a walkout by the Syrian delegation.
