These Are Not Disposable Allies

The temperature at Hama is 36 degrees Celsius today, is that enough to cause large amounts of munitions to explode. Also several massive successive explosions were reported by locals.
Honestly this sounds like some sort of sabotage, ammo doesnt blow up at 36 degrees.
I'm thinking you're probably right. Gun powder ignites at around 465 c so I don't think it's likely it would ignite spontaneously from heat alone
The actual temperature in a uncooled warehouse is probably hotter than the outside temperature. Plus, munitions can slow cook - don't know how plausible it is given everything..
I've never heard of munitions "slow cooking" before so you're probably right. Do you know off hand what kind of temps you'd need for something like that to occur?
No idea, just know it's a thing. If it was due to heat, I think the far more plausible scenario is that some dry weed/bush caught on fire and that led to a wider fire. Still, the whole thing is suspicious. Guess we'll have to wait to find out.
I think they mean something like a natural brush fire getting out control and spreading to the warehouse.
Improper storage can also lead to this sort of chain reaction of explosions.
Also there is an Iranian rocket storage at Hama airbase which makes this more suspicious.
Is there? I have never heard about Iranians being especially active there and Hama airbase has never been targeted in any of the Israeli attacks, they always focused on the supposed Iranian operations at T4, Mezzeh, Damascus international and sometimes Dumayr, but never Hama.
Heat caused by airstrikes?
Yeah thats what I was going to say. Was this sudden increase in heat caused by an enemy missile by any chance?
Elint News is a garbage source that frequently makes wild and unverified claims. They were the source for all the "Hariri lost to Hezbollah in his personal constituency" claims after the Lebanon election.
The heat? sure
Right? We should see airbases blowing up in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait all the time then...
I'd assume they're storing their weapons in much better conditions. They aren't fighting in a years-long civil war.
these things can happen. it’s a war and stocks get moved. A fireworks factory exploded a few years ago in Belgium I believe.
