The Syrian army bombarded jihadists in the last area outside government control near Damascus on Friday، as President Bashar al-Assad accelerated his push to retake remaining enclaves، Reuters reported.
On state television، large puffs of smoke could be seen appearing suddenly along a row of buildings as an artillery salvo struck home before one collapsed in a cloud of dust، accompanied by the rattle of automatic fire and the sound of distant blasts.

U.S.، British and French air strikes on Saturday to punish Assad for suspected use of chemical weapons have done nothing to slow the advance of his forces، now in their strongest position since the early months of the seven-year-old war.

Air strikes and shelling hit the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp and al-Hajar al-Aswad area، part of a small enclave divided between warring jihadists and other rebels south of the capital.
