After Russia said that foreign troops should leave Syria when the war ends, Tehran responded by saying no one can force Iran to do anything.

There was no immediate confirmation of the explosion and it was not clear what may have caused the blasts, which came days after another mysterious explosion at a Syrian base. According to reports, the explosions went off in fuel and arms depots.

The attacks are mostly conducted against targets belonging to the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah, which has been helping Damascus against foreign-backed terrorists.
