IDLIB, Syria (AA): At least 30 people were killed and 70 others injured in four explosions in Syria’s northern province of Idlib on Sunday.

According to an Anadolu Agency correspondent in the region, four explosions occurred in an area in the city center where cars were parked.

The injured were taken to the hospital.

The explosions were reportedly carried out with a bomb-laden vehicle, according to the authorities.

UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the blasts had targeted the headquarters of an opposition faction.

Syria has just begun to emerge from a devastating civil war that began in early 2011 when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.

No group has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
