SYRIAN STATE-RUN television says that three “terrorist” explosions have rocked a central district in the northern city of Aleppo.
The report says Wednesday’s blasts went off in the city’s main square, an area controlled by government forces. The TV did not give any immediate details on casualties or damage.
Aleppo-based activists reported at least two blasts in Aleppo’s central district and said they were likely caused by car bombs.
The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has claimed that dozens of people were killed and wounded in the explosions.
The city has seen intensified fighting between regime forces and rebels trying to oust President Bashar Assad, after the opposition fighters launched a new offensive last week.
