Mysterious explosion rocks through rebel base in south Idlib
A mysterious explosion ripped through Jaish al-Nasr’s military base inside the town of Taramla in Idlib’s southern countryside earlier today.
More than 10 fighters were critically wounded in the explosion which early reports suggest was the result of an accident in a hell cannon storage facility on base. The explosion destroyed the main building.
Notably, Jaish al-Nasr is an FSA faction operating in Hama’s northern countryside and generously sponsored by the US State Department which provides them with ample shipments of TOW missiles.
It is not unlikely that the explosion is due to arson action by a rival rebel group as southern Idlib has recently become the site of frequent infighting by insurgent groups.
