Idlib Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: SOHR activists have documented the death of a Dutch jihadist affected by the injury he sustained in today’s explosion in an arms store in Idlib city. Accordingly, the number of people killed in this explosion have risen to three, they were as follows: the store’s owner who was of a Syrian nationality, and two jihadists, one Uzbek and one Dutch.
SOHR sources documented earlier the death of two jihadists, one of whom was the owner of an arms store in Idlib city, while the other was an Uzbek jihadist, as a result of an explosion while they were trying to dismantle a landmine inside the arms store on Al-Jalaa Street in Idlib city centre. 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.
It is worth noting that dozens of arms and ammunition stores are available in various areas under the control of HTS.
On September 3, SOHR activists said that four people were injured in an unknown explosion in front of a weapons store in Ma’rat Misrin city in Idlib countryside.
Tahrir al-Sham grants licenses, in return for a large sum of money, to some 20 shops in Idlib city alone, allowing them to sell weapons and ammunition, mostly in outdoors markets and residential neighbourhoods.
