Syrian troops repulse rebel attack in Aleppo
Syria's state media said Monday that government troops repulsed a rebel attack on a police school in the northern city of Aleppo, one day after President Bashar Assad called on Syrians to fight an opposition driven by what he characterized as religious extremists.


The official SANA news agency said regime forces killed and wounded members of a "terrorist group" in the fighting late Sunday, but did provide a number. The government and the pro-regime media refer to the rebels seeking to topple Assad as terrorists. (AP)
