BEIRUT - A large explosion hit a central neighborhood of the Syrian city of Aleppo on Friday, state television said.
The news report said the explosion was caused by rockets fired by a "terrorist group" - a term it frequently uses to describe rebels trying to topple President Bashar Assad.
The blast caused casualties, the report said, without giving details. Television images showed the side of one building collapsed into rubble as a crowd sifted through the wreckage and pulled bloodied bodies onto stretchers.
