Syria rebels attack Assad strongholds in Damascus

Syrian rebels have carried out fresh attacks on government facilities and strongholds in the capital, Damascus. Mortar shells landed in Mezzeh 86, an Alawite district near the presidential palace, and hit the prime minister’s offices and Mezzeh military airfield, BBC reports. Fierce shelling and air strikes by government forces were also reported in several areas, a day after rebel groups carried out a series of bomb attacks. Activists said the escalation might herald a concerted rebel campaign.
