On July 10 in the afternoon, a large explosion rocked the eastern outskirts of the militant-held city of Idlib in northwestern Syria.

Initially, opposition sources reported that the explosion, which took place in Idlib’s industrial zone, was the result of a drone strike. At least two U.S. combat drones were allegedly circling over the city when the explosion occurred.

These claims were later denied by activists, who said that the explosion took place in an ammunition depot of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham. The terrorist group is infamous for stashing weapons and ammunition near heavily populated areas, especially in Idlib city.

Pro-government sources also said that the explosion took place in an ammo depot. However, they claimed that it was struck by a combat drone of the Syrian military and its allies. If true, the strike may have been a response to a recent failed attack in northern Lattakia. The attack was a violation of the ceasefire in Greater Idlib.

The large explosion reportedly killed two unidentified men. A third individual sustained serious burns all over his body and is now in a critical condition.

More information about the mysterious explosion is likely to emerge in the next few days. All current speculations are possible. All the current speculations are possible.
