Express, Apr 14, 2018 - A huge blast was heard near an Iranian military base in Syria this evening, amid unconfirmed reports it was attacked by unidentified aircraft.
The base was in the Jabal Azzan region south of Aleppo, a Syrian government-controlled rural region.
People claimed to have seen explosions at the site.
There are reports from Syrian media it was attacked by Israeli aircraft.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, reported the blast but said the cause was unknown.
Last week, Russia blamed Israel for an attack on a Syrian airbase that killed at least 12 people.
Moscow claimed morning that two Israeli fighter jets had launched the attack on the T4 base.
The Russian Defence Ministry said the F-15 planes had carried out the strikes from Lebanese air space.
It comes after air forces from the US, UK and France launched a series of airstrikes against alleged chemical weapons facilities in the country overnight.
