Syria denied an attack had taken place, saying, ‘No attack. Just a fire due to an electric short circuit,’ but Lebanon’s Hezbollah-linked al-Mayadeen news site blamed the attack on Israel.
Syria’s official SANA news outlet reported there were explosions set off by a fire at an ammunition depot caused by a short circuit.
Israel does not comment on military attacks outside the country, as a rule, either to confirm or deny the reports.
