BEIRUT - Dozens of air strikes hit the northern Syrian city of Aleppo overnight, a monitor and defense worker said, continuing a fierce air campaign by Syrian government and allied forces since a ceasefire broke down almost a week ago.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said dozens of air strikes had hit the rebel-held half of the divided city overnight, killing and wounding a number of people.

The air attacks follow a week of escalating bombardment after a week-long ceasefire broke down. On Thursday the Syrian army said it launched a fresh offensive in the city which has become the main battle ground of the conflict, now in its sixth year.

Bebars Mishal, a civil defense worker in rebel-held Aleppo, told Reuters the bombardment continued overnight until 6 a.m. (0300 GMT).
