AMMAN - Two large suburbs of Damascus came under heavy tank bombardment on Wednesday following renewed Free Syrian Army attacks on forces loyal to President Bashar Assad who retook the area from rebels two months ago, opposition activists said.

Artillery and anti-aircraft gun barrages hit the suburbs of Harasta and Irbin overnight and army helicopters were heard flying over the area, on the eastern edge of the capital, they said.
