As reported by the Interfax, armed clashes between the government army and the oppositional Free Syrian army in one of the districts of Damascus erupted on Monday night.
In the district of al-Mezze in the Syrian capital, where some state institutions, the residences of senior officials and embassies of several countries are located, and which is carefully protected by government forces, bursts of machine-gun fire and explosions of rockets have been heard during the night, the edition says.
Police has blocked the approaches to the district; all adjacent streets have been de-energized. Police patrol in al-Mezze has been significantly increased, Interfax reports.
