A series of suicide bombings exploded near an officers’ club in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo on Wednesday, killing at least 31 people.

A government official said three suicide bombers detonated their explosives-packed cars, wounding dozens of others. The three blasts went off at Aleppo’s main Saadallah al-Jabiri Square in a government-controlled district of the city, while a fourth explosion detonated a few hundred meters away near the Chamber of Commerce.

Aleppo-based activists said the bombings were followed by clashes and heavy gunfire. Syrian state television showed footage of a large crater in the road and massive destruction at the scene of the blasts. Many of the several storey high buildings on the square had their facades ripped off.
