In Syria, the government forces have intensified assault on the rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta today.

Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says that the Syrian army has in effect cut off the two large eastern Ghouta towns of Douma and Harasta besides taking control of town of Mesraba on Saturday.  

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his main ally Russia say the campaign is needed to end rebel shelling of Damascus and to end the rule of insurgents over the area’s civilians. APP/AFP
