Bomb explodes in Syrian city
An explosion ripped through a residential neighborhood in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo Sunday, the country’s state news agency said, calling it a ‘‘terrorist bombing.’’ The report by SANA gave no information on casualties or damage. It appeared to be the second attack in two days in cities where the regime enjoys strong support. Mohammed Saeed, an Aleppo resident, said a car bomb exploded near the Political Security Directorate in the city’s central neighborhood of Suleimaniyeh. He said the neighborhood has a large Christian population.
