Syria: Fireball At Weapons Factory
Syria Homs Explosions
Dramatic footage captures the moment a giant explosion engulfed a weapons depot killing scores and injuring 120.A series of giant explosions ripped through a weapons depot killing at least 40 and injuring scores after it came under rocket fire by Syrian rebels.

Video of the blast was posted on YouTube by activists opposing the Bashar al Assad regime. It showed a giant fireball blasting hundreds of feet into the air followed by a number of smaller explosions.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said: "At least 22 people, including civilians, were killed and dozens wounded, some seriously, when an ammunitions depot blew up in the pro-regime Wadi al-Zahab district after rocket fire, most probably by rebels."

The explosions, at the munitions depot which is operated by pro-regime militias, caused a significant amount of damage to the neighbouring area.

Those living nearby said the attack hit a sports hall in the district of southeastern Wadi al-Dhahab, which the army has taken over.

The area is majority Alawite, the same sect as Assad. Sunni Muslim insurgents have targeted Alawite areas, especially military positions, around the country with bombs and mortars.

The shelling of the depot came as President Assad made a speech in the town of Daraya, south west of Damascus, saying he was confident of a victory against rebels.

"If we were not sure that we were going to win in Syria, we would not have the ability to resist and the ability to continue fighting for more than two years against the enemy," he said.UN inspectors will inspect three sites of alleged chemical weapons attacks

Daraya was a symbolic choice for Mr Assad as it the town was once overrun by insurgents but has now largely been retaken by the regime's army.

It comes as a United National weapons chemical weapons investigations team announced they will visit three sites in the country where Sarin gas attacks have largely occurred.

Both sides have claimed the other has used chemical weapons, a claim largely acknowledged by the international community.

However, it is hoped the UN weapons inspectors will be able to establish whether chemical agents banned under international laws have been used in the two-and-a-half-year conflict.
