LATEST VIDEO Shows What Happening Inside Aleppo
The new offensive augurs a major escalation in the coming days that would put tens of thousands of civilians in serious danger.
Russian state television journalists on Tuesday visited the old town of Aleppo, which has suffered extensive damage over years of war.
They were escorted around by the Syrian army.
On Tuesday, Russia restarted bombing targets in Syria.
Russia said its offensive, using long-range missiles and its carrier-borne jets in combat for the first time on opposition areas in Syria, focused on rebel-held northern Idlib province and parts of the central province of Homs.
It didn't mention the besieged eastern neighbourhoods of Aleppo.
Activists reported the resumption of bombing in rebel-held neighbourhoods of Aleppo for the first time in nearly a month, apparently by Syrian government warplanes.
