Syrian forces appear to shell areas of greater Damascus

Violence continues to spread in Syria's ongoing civil war. Video obtained from a social media website that can't be independently verified by Reuters purports to show fresh shelling by government forces of Damascus suburb on Thursday. The man speaking in the video said the attack targeted civilian homes. Another video said to be shot the same day shows a Syrian army base, which rebels claim is responsible for shelling of other Damascus suburbs. Meanwhile, rebels say they have captured a Republican Guard colonel in the capital, who claims he is from President Bashar al-Assad's hometown. The Syrian conflict has escalated in recent days after Turkey retaliated for mortar attacks across the border.
