In May, a blast at a jihadist-run arms depot in Syria’s northwestern Idlib region killed two fighters and a civilian. The blast, which took place at Al-Furousiya camp near the town of Fuaa, blew the warehouse to smithereens and set fire to a nearby field.

SOHR said: “The blast destroyed a warehouse run by jihadists in which missiles and explosive materials were manufactured.”

Moreover, six of the camp residents, including women and children, were injured in the blast.
