AMMAN - Syrian rebels withdrew overnight from the central Damascus district of Midan after coming under heavy bombardment, opposition activists and rebel sources said on Friday.

"It is a tactical withdrawal. We are still in Damascus," Abu Omar, a rebel commander, said by phone, adding that Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces backed by armored vehicles subsequently entered deep into the district and are now in control of its main market area.
