Gen. Suheil al-Hassan, arrived in northern Syria to spearhead what they called the "Dawn of Idlib" operation.

An explosion of unknown origin at a weapons depot in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib killed at least 12 civilians Sunday, an activist group said.

An AFP correspondent at the site in the rebel-held town of Sarmada near the Turkish border said the explosion caused two buildings to collapse.

On Sunday, rescuers in Sarmada used bulldozers to remove the rubble and pull out trapped people, a correspondent for the AFP news agency reported. The cause of the blast wasn't immediately known.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the death toll at 39, including 21 women and children. The explosion collapsed two five-story buildings, burying numerous victims, it said.

He said most of those killed were family members of fighters from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, an alliance led by terrorists from Syria's former Al-Qaeda affiliate, who had been displaced to the area from the central province of Homs.

While some attacks have been claimed by Daesh, most are the result of infighting since past year between various other groups.

President Bashar al-Assad has warned that government forces intend to retake Idlib, after his Russia-backed regime regained control of swathes of terrorist-held territory elsewhere.

Around 2.5 million people live in the province, half of them displaced by fighting in other parts of the country.
