The
Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported shelling in
number of areas Thursday. It says residents are fleeing parts of the
Mezzeh neighborhood after troops surrounded it and clashed with local
rebels.

The group says rebels damaged one helicopter and disabled three military vehicles.

Wednesday’s
bombing targeted a high-level crisis meeting, killing the defense
minister, his deputy, who is Assad’s brother-in-law, and a former
defense minister. Other officials were wounded.
