Syrian forces push into Aleppo districts: state television

World Bulletin / News Desk

Syrian state TV said on Wednesday that forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad had pushed into the southern Salaheddine district of Aleppo, killing the majority of the rebels there, and had entered other parts of the city in a fresh offensive.

It said that dozens of "terrorists" were killed in the central district of Bab al-Hadeed, close to the ancient citadel, and Bab al-Nayrab in the south east.

Rebels have used Salaheddine, the southern gateway to Syria's biggest city, as a base for three weeks but a Reuters witness said some positions were abandoned on Wednesday.
