Syrian warplanes launched a series of strikes on the outskirts of Damascus Saturday as President Bashar al-Assad’s regime pressed a bid to drive back rebels, a monitoring group said.
Fresh fighting meanwhile erupted in several flashpoint areas around the capital, while the army renewed its shelling on besieged rebel areas of the central city of Homs, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
“Warplanes carried out several air strikes on the edges of Assali (in the south) and Qaboon (east),” said the Britain-based group, referring to areas on the outskirts of Damascus.
