Officials say at least 39 people including 12 children have been killed in a blast that brought down a building in Syria’s mainly rebel-held North-Western Province of Idlib.

The building in the Sarmada town is said to have contained munitions belonging to an arms trafficker.

A monitor and correspondents say dozens of people are still missing.

In recent months, the Syrian government, backed by Russia and Iran, have made major advances in its offensive against a number of rebel and Jihadist groups across Syria.
