Well, some good news at last!
I love it when this happens....
Five Hamas operatives and two Iranian Revolutionary Guards trainers were killed in an explosion that took place on a Hamas military base near Damascus, Syria, Kuwaiti daily al-Siyasa reported on Sunday.
According to the report, the explosion occurred at the start of November, and five more Hamas operatives were also injured during weapons training.
Sources told the paper that the explosion was the result of a technical failure during a rocket dismantling and reassembling training exercise. The exercise, which was carried out using Iranian-made long-range rockets, was meant to ease the smuggling of such arms through the Gaza tunnels.
The incident covered up and kept quiet in an attempt to hide the presence of Iranian Revolutionary Guards trainers in Syria. Sunday's report was the first in regards to the incident.
According to the report, Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal and Syrian Military Intelligence Chief Abdulfattah Qudsiyya, responsible for the Revolutionary Guards' trainers in Syria's activity, agreed on keeping the matter under wraps.
The sources told the paper that the bodies of the five Hamas men killed in the explosion were buried at the al-Yarmouk refugee camp outside Damascus. Their families were told that they were killed in a road accident on November 7, when a bus hit a truck on a highway outside of the capital.
