At least one soldier has been killed and 24 people injured in a “terrorist attack” in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo, Syria’s state TV reports.

Armed terrorists targeted a military bus with an explosive device at the southern bypass area, near al-Nirab Airport Bridge in Syria’s second largest city Aleppo, Syrian state TV reported on Thursday.

Among those injured were military officers, non-commissioned officers and a number of civilians. Three of the wounded were in serious conditions.

Syrian television reported that the armed groups were “intensifying criminal operations in an attempt to destabilize Syria and torpedo the plan” of UN-Arab league peace envoy Kofi Annan.

A ceasefire has gone into effect in Syria in line with the Annan’s six-point peace initiative in efforts to bring an end to more than a year of turmoil in the country.

The Syrian government has issued a warning that security forces would “respond proportionately to any attacks carried out by armed terrorist groups against civilians, government forces or public and private property.”
