Day after massive blasts killed 87 people in Aleppo campus, triple bombings rip through Idlib

At least 24 people were killed, most of them government forces, in three coordinated car bombs in Syria's Idlib province, a violence monitor said on Wednesday, a day after explosions killed more than 87 people in Aleppo University.

A government official said the blasts Wednesday struck on a major highway and a roundabout. The explosions also wounded 35 people.


The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the Idlib bombings targeted security vehicles near the local security headquarters. The group said there were several casualties but did not give details.


The official did not say what the target was. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give official statements.
