(Middle East Eye) A string of explosions rocked fuel and weapons stores at an airbase in Syria's central Hama province on Friday, killing at least 11 pro-government fighters, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The UK-based war monitor said the blasts were likely due to a "technical problem".
"The explosions struck several regime depots of weapons and fuel at Hama military airport," Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman.

Eleven government troops were killed, including members of allied militias, and dozens more wounded or still unaccounted for, Abdel Rahman said.
