Damascus | Ambiguity surrounds violent explosion in early morning

SOHR activists have reported hearing a loud explosion in the early hours of Sunday morning in the capital, Damascus, exactly the city’s southern part, while a plum of smoke was seen. However, it is not known if the explosion was caused by a new Israeli attack on Syrian territory or it took place after a technical fault.

 

On July 22, reliable sources told the Syrian Observatory that Israeli fighter jets flying over Lebanon struck, in the early hours of Thursday morning, military positions of the Lebanese Hezbollah in al-Dab’a military airbase, al-Qusair area in the western countryside of Homs and other military positions and posts in the eastern countryside of Homs. The new airstrikes destroyed weapons and ammunition warehouses, amid confirmed reports of casualties.

 

While on July 9, SOHR activists documented the death of 11 Syrian regime soldiers and militiamen of the National Defense Forces, including a brigadier general, in Israeli strikes on the scientific research centre in the area of Kharbat al-Tinah in western Homs. The strikes also targeted an ammunition warehouse belonging to the Lebanese Hezbollah, south of Homs city.
