(CNN)A maternity hospital supported by Save the Children has been bombed in the northwestern Syrian city of Idlib, the organization said Friday on its Twitter account.

The tweet said there were casualties, but it is not clear how many.
Speaking to CNN from the charity's office in London, spokeswoman Emma Pomfret said: "The bomb hit the entrance of the hospital, which sees 1,300 women monthly and carries out over 300 deliveries a month."
The hospital was set up in June 2014 and is supported by Save the Children through its partner Syria Relief.
"The aftermath of the horrific #Syria hospital bombing. Our thoughts are with families & team members on the ground," read another tweet.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed reports of the bombing and said that as of now perpetrators are not known.
