    The bombardment often goes on for hours on end. Tank rounds, missiles from helicopter gunships, rockets and mortars, as well as small arms fire. The border town of Al Qusayr has been shelled repeatedly for over a month now. The Free Syrian Army (FSA) in this town are hopelessly out-gunned. They have just small arms, RPGs and a handful of mortars. Yet they are making progress. An assault was staged on the main headquarters of the Assad forces, a town hall. After taking control of the building, they then demolished it so it could not be retaken. Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from Al Qusayr, southern Syria.
