BEIRUT – Twenty-five people were killed and 175 people were wounded in two blasts targeting security bases in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo on Friday, state television quoted the Health Ministry as saying.

The opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights quoted residents as saying three blasts occurred, including one near a security forces’ building in the city. They also reported hearing gunfire.

A resident contacted by Reuters said an area around a military intelligence complex in the New Aleppo district had been sealed off after the explosions.

Aleppo, Syria’s main commercial hub, had been relatively quiet during the 11-month uprising against President Bashar Assad but has seen increasing protests and violence in recent weeks.
