The Damascus sky lit by explosions, August 13, 2023.

A Hezbollah weapons depot exploded early Tuesday near Damascus in an area northeast of the Syrian capital.


The cause of the explosion was unclear.

The blast struck a depot containing “missiles and ammunition” in an area northeast of Damascus that is “dominated by Lebanon’s Hezbollah” group, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

There were an unspecified number of casualties from the blast near the town of Al-Ruhaiba, the group said.

The explosion, which allegedly came from within the depot, came two days after a similar explosion took place in Iranian weapons warehouses.
