Syria border town bombed

BEIRUT, Nov 13, 2012, AFP:
Fierce clashes between Syrian regime forces and rebels near Damascus on Tuesday left 10 soldiers and a rebel dead, while warplanes again bombed the strategic border town of Ras al-Ain, a watchdog said.

The fighting in the east Damascus suburb of Ghuta came after rebels launched an attack on public buildings in the area, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

At Daraya, a neighbourhood south of Damascus, a rebel was killed when insurgents launched an attack on a military checkpoint, while four rebels died in fighting and shelling in other outlying areas of the capital, the Observatory said.

The watchdog also reported fresh bombings by warplanes of Ras al-Ain, in northeastern Syria on the Turkish border, where it said at least 16 people had died on Monday in air strikes and shelling of rebel positions.
