Syrian armed forces launched a renewed offensive in the northern city of Aleppo on Wednesday, state media said, a day after 87 people were killed in explosions at the city's university.

The state news agency SANA said the military had killed dozens of "terrorists"—a term Damascus uses for rebels trying to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad—in the new fighting.
