Blasts hit Syrian coastal city, causing casualties

BEIRUT - At least two explosions hit the Syrian city of Jableh on the Mediterranean coast on Monday in what appeared to be a rare attack there, a monitoring group and state-run television channel said.
The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the two blasts caused a number of casualties, but did not elaborate.
Ikhbariya TV reported in a news flash that three explosions killed and wounded an unspecified number of people in Jableh, which is in Latakia province. It described the blasts as terrorist attacks.
