At least 83 martyrs today, mostly in Damascus, Idlib and Aleppo, where the FSA says it is launching a new offensive to try to extend it’s control over the city. In Damascus heavy clashes started in Abbasayin Square extended to Jobar. The sound of explosions and heavy firing were heard across the city while more executed bodies are found in the suburbs and countryside. It seems the regime still isn’t satisfied with the level of destruction of Homs, the siege and shelling continues, and Rastan remains a war zone for the 3rd month in a row. Meanwhile, some political parties close to the regime held a conference in Damascus today pretending to be the opposition. They reject violence and reject foreign intervention but don’t reject Assad, who is reliant on both. See the map for more info.
