Syria: death toll of deadly explosion reaches 28

(MENAFN) At least 28 Syrian fighters have been killed in a string of blasts at a regime airbase in central Syria earlier this week, a monitor said yesterday giving a new toll.

The deadly explosions tore through weapons and fuel depots on Friday at a military airport in Syria's Hama province, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

"The toll has gone up to at least 28 regime forces and loyalist fighters, all Syrian," said the Britain-based monitor, after initially reporting 11 killed.

It said the death toll could rise as "dozens" are wounded "some in of them in critical condition," it said.
