Syrian rebels detonate 2 bombs at Aleppo prison

Published: 05.15.13, 13:36 / Israel News

Activists say Syrian rebels have detonated two car bombs outside the main prison in the northern city of Aleppo and are trying to storm the facility, where hundreds of regime opponents are believed to be held.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the blasts were part of a coordinated rebel assault on the prison, and that fierce clashes were raging between President Bashar Assad's troops and opposition fighters around the detention center. Aleppo's central prison is believed to be holding about 4,000 prisoners, around 250 jailed for reasons related to the 26-month-old uprising against Assad's regime. (AP)
