Idlib province – The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented the killing of two jihadists, one of whom was the owner of an arms shop in the city of Idlib, and the other of Uzbek nationality, as a result of an explosion while they were trying to dismantle a landmine inside an arms shop on Al-Jala Street in the centre of Idlib city. The explosion also left five people wounded, including jihadists and civilians, who were near the site of the explosion.
SOHR sources have just reported an explosion in an arms shop on Al-Jala street in the centre of Idlib city, which is under the control of HTS. The explosion left a number of injuries, but no fatalities have been reported so far, and no information has yet been reported on the cause of the explosion.
On September 3, SOHR activists said that four people were injured in an unknown explosion in front of weapons store in Ma’rat Misrin city in Idlib countryside.
The explosion also caused material damage to the site.
Tahrir al-Sham grants licenses to some 20 shops for a large sum of money in Idlib city alone, for selling weapons and ammunition, mostly in markets and residential neighbourhoods.
Dozens of gun and ammunition shops are scattered in various areas under the control of HTS.
