Unlike many of the now familiar images, this is not the aftermath of bombardments by fighter jets, helicopters or tanks. Instead, it is the aftermath of several bombs ripping through Saadallah al-Jabri square in downtown Aleppo yesterday. The targets were two hotels, the officer’s club and the municipal palace. The area was controlled by the regime and according to the perpetrators the buildings served as their headquarters. Car bombs and suicide bombers caused the massive destruction shown above which can also be seen from the BBC’s collection of pictures.
