Rebel fighters took up positions on street corners in Damascus exchanging fire with government forces. Moments later a shell hits close by driving them to seek better cover in this latest video posted to a social media website that Reuters cannot indepedently verify.

Other video showed what were said to be Hezebollah fighters coming under fire in another district of the capital. President Bashar al Assad's forces pounded rebel strongholds in the Eastern part of the city on Saturday. Emboldened by their victory in Qusair, the military has redoubled their efforts in Damacus with a special focus on cutting off rebel supply routes
