At least 17 people were killed and scores were wounded when a car bomb exploded in the northern Syrian border post on the frontier with Turkey, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Some activists reported that the casualty count could be as high as 30. Ambulances have transported the wounded into Turkey.

The deadly blast occurred at a garage near the Bab al-Salameh border crossing in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo.

The garage is used by passengers who come to, or leave the crossing point, the Observatory said.

Syria's conflict began with largely peaceful protests calling for reforms and transformed into an armed uprising and eventually a civil war following a ferocious military crackdown on protesters.

More than 150,000 people have died since March 2011, and hundreds of thousands of people have been wounded, while millions have been displaced.
