Damascus suburb residents reportedly clash with Syrian rebels

BEIRUT - Armed residents of the Damascus district of Douma clashed with a powerful rebel force on Saturday, a monitoring group said, in a rare instance of infighting in the area.
The fighting started on Friday in the eastern suburb after locals attacked storehouses of an organization close to the Army of Islam, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The British-based Observatory, which gathers information from a network of sources inside Syria, said guards exchanged fire with the attackers, wounding several.
