Syrian rebels bombard central Damascus, army artillery hits back

“Syrian rebels fired dozens of mortar bombs into central Damascus on Monday, hitting a high-security area within a kilometer (less than a mile) of President Bashar al-Assad’s residence, residents and a security source said. The military retaliated with artillery fire from Mount Qasioun, overlooking the Syrian capital. ‘I’ve heard dozens of regime shells so far, pounding rebels,’ one resident said. It was some of the heaviest fighting in the heart of the city since an uprising against Assad erupted two years ago.”
