A Syrian group has claimed responsibility for coordinated suicide bombings in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo that killed 48 people, the SITE monitoring group said on Thursday.
At least two car bombs exploded on Wednesday in the main Saadallah al-Jabiri Square and another bomb exploded a few hundred metres away, state media said.
SITE said Al Nusra Front claimed responsibility for "blowing up dens" in a communiqué posted on forums on Wednesday and provided details of its operation, pictures of the targeted buildings after the attacks, and the bombers.
The group said it targeted the Officers' Club in Saadallah al-Jabiri Square, municipal offices, the Amir Hotel, and the Touristic Hotel, identifying each as being either command centres or barracks for security forces and "shabbiha," pro-government militias.
The authenticity of the information could not be verified.
