AMMAN - Syrian state media said the army was clashing with rebels who had launched a dawn offensive on government positions on a major road artery into Damascus on Tuesday.
A reporter on state-owned Ikhabariyah said the rebels had stormed government-held parts of the suburb of Jobar, a day after they were pushed out of areas close to the Old City in a counterattack.
There was no immediate comment by the Syrian army.
