    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — Jihadists based in Aleppo have attacked on Wednesday a city university campus leaving at least six people dead, Arabic media reported, citing its sources.

    According to the Al Mayadeen television broadcaster, the missile attack has also left at least 20 people with wounds of different severity.

    The Sana news agency reported, citing a military source that another four people, including three women, had been injured throughout the day as a result of attacks by militants.
