Gigantic Explosion at Syrian Ammo Depot Kills Dozens (Video)

Syrian rebels and Assad’s forces are fighting it out to see which side is more brutal and inhuman. An explosion at a rebel-bombed Syrian army depot looks like an Atomic bomb blast.

Syrian rebels carried out a massive rocket attack on a Syrian army ammunition depot in Homs Thursday, killing more than 40 people and wounding more than 100.

The blast stopped, for the time being, slowed down a relentless Syrian army offensive to take back control of Homs, a key commercial center and a stronghold of rebel forces in the civil war.

The ammunition depot is located in a pro-government area of the city, and the casualty count is expected to rise.

The Syrian official news agency SANA denied there was a blast and said that “terrorists” struck at the entrance of Homs, wounding dozens of civilians, four of whom “were later martyred.”

“Those reports broadcast by channels, which are partners in the Syrian bloodshed, are categorically untrue and aim at raising the morale of the armed terrorist groups after the big losses they inflicted in many regions of Homs, particularly in al-Khaldiye,” it reported from “a source.”

“The source added that this coward [sic] act will not affect the army courageous soldiers, but it will increase their determination to rescue Syria from the dirtiness of terrorists,” the news agency stated.

Meanwhile, the United Nations continues to talk and set up teams to investigate the use of chemical weapons in the war, which officially has killed 100,000 people while unofficial estimates warn of twice as many deaths.

Millions of people have fled their homes, many of them to neighboring countries.

  1. Isa.17

    [1] The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

    [3] The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts.

  2. David Bishop says:

    Wonder what weapon would create such an explosion.

  3. behold, you're full of nonsense & humanity can be thankful that Syria will retain control over her central bank & will not become yet another Israeli mossad run puppet state with an extremist muslim regime like the rest of your arab spring victims.

  4. Myriam Obadia says:

    Freedom Miner , you and the Tribulation guy are 2 faces from the same coin. The Israelis aren't interfering or intervening in any Arab country, Israel -unlike the US, EU, Russia, China, or Iran- doesn't have "puppet" states. We're quite content to see our enemies fighting each other since, while they do so, they're distracted from attacking us.

  5. Cody Flecker says:

    We should always remember that there was a peace of sorts with the Assad Regime for many years. Now that the Rebels are gaining an upper hand, how long do you think it will take for war to resume between them and Israel?

  6. Colin Plen says:

    Somebody will find a way to blame Israel for the explosion.

  7. Anonymous says:

    There was no peace. Assad supported and funded Hezbollah to murder Jews. He is a coward who works through proxies instead of facing Israel face-to-face like a man. His support of Hezbollah is paying off since they are coming to his defense.

  8. The various Arab voices can chant ad infinity cursing Israeli hands in this and that. It’s not going to be true, either. Great many people in the West are now aware of the Arab fallacy, and their inability to do any successful future for themselves. Just the reverse – they blow up their own nests. What kind of animal is seeing tour that?

  9. Obamaaa, Kerryyyyy, look this nice mushroom, don't bother Israel.
