A large underground ammo depot of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in northern Idlib was wiped out on October 31 by the Russian Aerospace Forces.
According to local sources, the ammo depot, which was located in the outskirt of the town of Darkush near the Turkish border, was targeted with precision-guided air-to-ground munitions launched by a Russian warplane.
Opposition activists released a video showing smoke rising from the underground depot, that was devastated by a large explosion a few seconds later.
A member of the White Helmet named Ahmad Qibah organization was reportedly killed in the secondary ammunition explosions. The group was apparently trying to put down the fire in the ammo depot, that was built by HTS terrorists right next to several civilian buildings.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that Russian warplanes carried out more than 20 other airstrikes on southern, eastern Idlib and northern Lattakia.
