Syria: Army Launches Offensive On Damascus Province, Security Official Says

The Syrian army launched an offensive on Damascus province Feb. 6, a security official said, Al Arabiya reported. The province was bombed heavily and there was very heavy fighting, the director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. A security official said that all entries to the capital had been sealed. In the suburbs of Damascus, loyalist forces — usually from elite formations equipped with the best weapons the Syrian military has in its inventory — have also been able to stage attacks on encroaching rebel forces.
