Local activists quoted by the press reported that the causes of the explosion of the facility, located in an area under control of the “Failaq el Sham” group (Legion of the Levant in English), which is supported by the Turkish Army, are still unknown.

Several of the shells and rockets in the warehouse were fired at random and one of them fell on a refugee camp in the town of Atama, on Turkish territory, killing three civilians, including a child, in addition to causing material damage to houses, the sources added.

They noted that immediately after the incident, Turkish reconnaissance drones flew over the area, while a mobilization was reported between the ranks of the Turkish forces and the radical groups related to them. In turn, Athr Press news website revealed that there are many arms depots along the border line and they are managed by Turkish traders who distribute their contents to the Pro-Turkish armed groups in Idlib and Aleppo provinces.

In Idlib, 320 kilometers north of Damascus, extremist organizations such as the Levant Liberation Board, formerly the Al Nousra Front; and the Turkestan Islamic Party, composed of ethnic Chinese Uyghur mercenaries, are deployed.
