The other explosion followed shortly after and was set off in the city's airport. The war monitor said it wasn't clear whether the blasts had been caused by technical failure inside the depots or an attack. Thick plumes of smoke could be seen above the airport, it said. The blasts were originally reported by Syrian state media, which provided to explanation as to the cause of the explosions. One week ago, Syrian media reported that Israel had struck several positions in the country near the border that separates the two, after Israel's military said Iranian forces in Syria had shelled one of its outposts near the border.The IDF confirmed the attack and said that some 20 rockets were fired on the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps' Quds Force.
