Activists have reported more than 20 explosions in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa held by the ISIL group. 

A Raqqa-based collective called Raqqa is Being Silently Slaughtered said 22 blasts shook the city late Thursday.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the 20 explosions killed 14 ISIL fighters and wounded more than 20.

The group said it was not clear if the explosions were the result of air raids by the U.S.-led coalition or Russian warplanes.

The Observatory's chief Rami Abdurrahman and Raqqa is Being Silently Slaughtered say a training facility, known as Vanguards Camp, was hit on the southern edge of the city.

France's Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said French warplanes bombed a training camp in Raqqa.
