Car Bombs Kill At Least 22 In Northern Syria

TEXT SIZE - +
Three car bombs reportedly have exploded in Syria's northern province of Idlib, killing at least 22 people.

An unnamed Syrian government official said the explosions struck a major highway and a roundabout.

At least 35 people were reportedly injured in the attack.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the Idlib bombings targeted the local security headquarters.

The rights group said there were several casualties but did not elaborate.

The bombings come a day after massive blasts on a university campus in the northern city of Aleppo killed 87 people.

The government and the rebels fighting against President Bashar al-Assad's regime have blamed each other for the Aleppo attacks.
