Warfare on all fronts in Syria

And then comes the explosion.
Amateur video, which can not be independently verified by Reuters, appears to show war raging across the country.
In Aleppo, panic filled streets.
People try to put out the flames of a burning car after what they say was a car bomb. Others douse a building with on a broken open street.

The motorcycle bomb went off in a mostly Christian area killing three people and wounding another seven.
