Massive Blasts Reported in Syria

Two large blasts were reported near the official Air Force compound in Damascus on Monday night, the Syrian opposition said Tuesday. The death toll is still uncertain in the car bomb attacks, although opposition activists the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed that “hundreds of regime forces” had been killed—and one opposition activist called it the “largest blast” he had seen since the uprising began last year. Meanwhile, heavy bombardments in Idlib, Homs, and other areas were reported on Monday as fighting between Syria and Turkey has continued for seven straight days.
