State TV: Syrian forces push into Aleppo districts

BEIRUT - Syrian state TV said on Wednesday that forces loyal to President Bashar 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.
