AMMAN - Elite Syrian forces backed by armored personnel carriers stormed part of Damascus on Wednesday, firing machineguns in the air, in the closest deployment of troops to the center of the capital in an 11-month uprising, residents and activists said.

Troops from the Fourth Armored Division and Republican Guards erected roadblocks in main streets of Barzeh neighborhood, searched houses and made arrests.

Residents said the troops were looking for opposition activists and members of the Free Syrian Army, which has been providing security for protests against President Bashar Assad in the district.
