BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – A powerful explosion was heard in the administrative capital of the Aleppo Governorate on Saturday morning, a field source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the explosion took place around the defense factions in the Ramouseh District.

The source said that the explosions were first thought to be from airstrikes on the Ramouseh District; however, they later ruled this out after investigating the scene of the blast.

The Syrian military and administrative police are still investigating the area to find out what caused the explosion.

Earlier this month, the Israeli Air Force struck the southern town of Al-Safira, which is where the Iranian military advisors are currently based.

The Israeli airstrike on southern Aleppo was the last time that any blast has taken place inside the government-held areas.
