Mixed and contradictory reports emerged from Syria Saturday night over a mystery blast that rocked an Iranian base located on the outskirts of Aleppo.
The initial reports coming out of Syrian media was that the base was hit by unidentified aircraft, with some reports attributing the attack to Israel. Later, reports said that the explosion was caused by an accident at the facility.
The Iranian base, located in the Jabal Azzan region south of Aleppo, is the largest in the country.
Hezbollah media sources denied the reports and said that the explosions at the site resulted from explosives detonating in a warehouse.
