Syrian air strikes, shelling batter rebels in Damascus suburbs

Published: 04.26.13, 15:53 / Israel News

The Syrian army attacked two rebel-held suburbs of Damascus with fierce air strikes and shelling on Friday, pursuing an offensive against President Bashar Assad's foes, residents and a monitoring group said.

 

Assad's forces, which have been trying to dislodge rebels from several outlying districts south and east of the capital, focused their assault on Jobar, just inside central Damascus. The army seized the town of Otaiba on Wednesday, cutting a weapons supply route from the Jordanian border into the eastern fringes of Damascus that rebels had used for eight months. (Reuters)
