Syrian Observatory for Human Right (SOHR) reports a powerful explosion in the area of Mount Azzan in southern Aleppo. The Iranian weapons storage facility, said to be one of the biggest in the country, is located in Mount Azzan and was reportedly used by Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran, and other Iranian militias in Syria.
Skynews Arabia and Al Jazeera claim that unidentified warplanes struck the Iranian weapons depot.
Unidentified planes were seen in the area during the strikes. Syrian sources suggest that the explosion near Mount Azzan was caused by Israeli airstrike. Iranian base was targeted. Over 20 Iranian soldiers are reportedly killed.
Sources in Syria claim numerous covert strikes have also targeted Iranian military sites near Deir Ez-Zor. There are unconfirmed reports of a massive explosion in Quneitra near Israel border.
The Lebanese news agency al-Mayadeen reported that Hezbollah denied that any military strike took place and said there were some controlled explosions near the site earlier in the day.
