Battle for Damascus 3-27-13

March 27, 2013

This video shows what opposition media claim to be a government bombardment of Qaboon in northeast Damascus on Wednesday.

Clashes in the area continued on Wednesday as government forces and rebel fighters compete for the strategic locations on the Damascus-Homs highway. This highway links the east side of Outer Damascus with the west side, where rebels are isolated in the Barada valley. If the rebels capture territory here, they will be able to link up with their supporters in Barada valley and help isolate the government in the capital by cutting off its supply route from the north.
