Syrian rebels launched a major offensive on Sunday that brought them close to the heart of the Old City of Damascus, and government forces responded with intense bombardments of rebel-held areas. The escalation was reported by witnesses, state TV, rebel sources, and a monitoring group, marked a bid by the rebels to relieve army pressure on besieged areas they control to the east of the capital. Moderate Free Syrian Army and jihadist groups were both involved in the assault on the districts of Jobar and Abbasiyin, some 1.2 miles east of the Old City walls.
