Damascus: At least 12 people have been killed as Syrian government forces backed by tanks renewed their attacks in the capital of Damascus on Tuesday.

Reportedly, activist groups said that Syrian forces stormed a rebel-held town outside Damascus Tuesday, killing dozens of people, including at least 23 anti-government fighters.

The Syrian government considers rebels to be terrorists aided by international weapons and policies it says are designed to bring down the Syrian regime.

Stretched thin on multiple fronts, Syrian government forces have stepped up air raids against Syrian rebels, especially in northern cities, leading to rising civilian casualties.
