This Wednesday the regime forces of Syria shelled two districts in Damascus before assaulting the neighborhoods and conducting house-to-house raids in search of opposition fighters.
Today Bashar al-Assad regime killed 23 suspected rebels after they rained mortars down on the upscale Kafar Soussa neighborhood and adjacent sector of Nahr Eishah during daybreak. The shelling was apparently made from the top of the Qasioun mountain since it overlooks the capital.
According to activists this violent acts are part of a dramatic surge in fighting over the past month in Damascus. This is just one of the many tactics employed by President al-Assad to suppress the rebellion against his rule.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights increased the death toll in Kafar Soussa at 12 casualties. AV
