BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 P.M.) – A massive explosion rocked the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate last night, a military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.

According to the source, a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) ammo depot inside the Jirah Airbase caught on fire, resulting in a series of explosions that could be heard from the provincial capital.

At least two soldiers were killed as a result of the explosions, the source added.

While some pro-opposition accounts claimed that the explosions were a result of Israeli airstrikes, the Syrian military denied any attack on the Jirah Airbase.

The fire inside the ammo depot was believed to have started as a result of the warm temperatures in eastern Aleppo recently.

Whaaaat? When every car-crushed dog in the MENA is blamed on the k**es, the fire in an ammo depot isn’t?
Syria renewing with being the cradle of civilisation? Becoming conscious again that Syrians are also k**es?

Russia does not want Syria to tell the truth that it was the Zionist tyranny that conducted the airstrike in Aleppo to avoid embarassment.
