Video shows rebels facing off with government army outside Damascus

WARNING-STORY CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES Black smoke billows from the remnants of what is reported to be a destroyed Syrian army tank. New amateur video from the Damascus suburb of Maaloula appears to show rebels celebrating their defense. One rebel can be heard describing an attempted advance by the government army. He later points out the tank's driver. Reuters cannot independently verify the video, which came from a social media website. The video also shows the smoke-stained walls and other ruins at the damaged monastery of St. Sarkis. The fighting comes as the U.S. and Syria ally Russia make a renewed push for international peace talks.
