Syrian rebels launch new attack on Damascus - Hezbollah

Syrian rebels launch new attack on Damascus - HezbollahThe Lebanese militant group Hezbollah says that Syrian rebels have detonated a car bomb in an eastern neighbourhood of Damascus and launched a renewed attack on the Syrian capital from the city's Jobar neighbourhood.

This is reported by Associated Press.

There were no immediate reports of casualty numbers in Tuesday's bombing.

Hezbollah is heavily invested in defending Syrian President Bashar Assad in his country's civil war. Its military media arm says fighting is underway in the opposition-held Jobar neighbourhood, which Syrian government forces had held under siege since 2013.

Syrian state media say government forces have repelled the attack. It said 10 people were wounded.

A rebel blitz spearheaded by an al-Qaida-linked group shook the eastern parts of the capital on Sunday, with fighters managing to seize a neighbourhood before pro-government forces pushed them back Monday.
