Syria: Damascus Repels Another Rebel Attack 


Published Thursday, February 7, 2013
The armed Syrian opposition declared yet another “zero hour” to take Damascus on Wednesday. By nightfall, however, the army managed to restore order in the capital and widen its offensive against the rebels in the countryside.
Residents of Damascus woke up on Wednesday, 6 February 2013, to the sound of explosions and armed skirmishes echoing throughout the city.
They wondered whether it was the armed forces attacking the Free Syrian Army (FSA), or was it due to a rebel offensive against military checkpoints along the flyover junction south of the capital.
As it turned out, the Islamist al-Nusra Front had declared operation “Just Punishment,” the aim of which was to enter into the heart of Damascus.
Nusra’s call was backed by the various factions of the FSA, who gave the offensive various names on social networking sites, such as the “Great Battle for Damascus” and the “Great Confrontation.”
Residents of the historic Bab Tuma district in the city center called those of Jermana to the east to ask them whether they knew the source of the fighting which was shaking the walls of their old houses. Meanwhile, people in the main avenues in the city center ran for cover believing that the battles were very close to them.
Nothing was certain at first other than the fact that Wednesday was the worst day of fighting Damascus has witnessed since the FSA declared it “zero hour” to take the city in December 2012.
The Syrian army responded forcefully by targeting the areas of Jobar, Harasta, and Idlib to the northeast of the capital, after having called on residents to leave these areas the previous day in preparation for a major advance.
Military sources confirmed to Al-Akhbar that one of their checkpoints in the Kiswah area south of Damascus came under attack, resulting in the death of an officer and a soldier.

دمشق تُحبط «القصاص العادل»

أنس زرزر | مرح ماشي

دمشق في دائرة النار من جديد. المعارضة المسلحة أعلنت «الساعة الصفر» مجدّداً، لتسجّل فشلاً ميدانياً آخر. الجيش السوري ثبّت الاستقرار في العاصمة، ووسّع حملته على ريفها
دمشق | استيقظ سكان دمشق على أصوات اشتباكات وانفجارات يتردّد صداها في كل المناطق. لم يدرِ سكان المدينة القديمة إن كان الجيش هو من يدكّ معاقل «الجيش الحر»، أو أنّ الأخير يستهدف الحواجز العسكرية والأمنية على طول الطريق المتحلق الجنوبي للعاصمة، ليتبيّن لاحقاً أنّ «جبهة النصرة» قد أعلنت عملية «القصاص العادل»، التي تهدف إلى الدخول نحو قلب دمشق.
