BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:25 P.M.) – A jihadist group issued a statement on Saturday that claimed responsibility for the explosions that took place inside the Hama Military Airport yesterday.
The jihadist group, Saraya Al-Jihad, stated that their fighters went behind enemy lines, Friday, and planted several bombs in the western part of the Hama Military Airport.
Saraya Al-Jihad’s fighters then evaded the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in the area and returned to their lines, where they detonated their explosives at the Hama Military Airport.
The group published photos from the base, but no proof they were behind the explosions.
Despite these claims, the Syrian military maintains the explosions were a result of a technical issue inside the airport.
