The Syrian army stepped up shelling and air strikes on the last rebel-held enclaves in the Syrian capital on Monday, its heaviest bombardment in a two-month campaign.

From the strategic Qasyoun heights that overlooks Damascus, elite units of the Army pounded Jobar district, some 2 km east of the old city wall and Ain Terma just to the south.

Video uploaded to Social Media on Monday purported to show the air strikes on the Ain Terma area of the city.

The Army’s offensive has dented a Russian-sponsored ceasefire announced two weeks ago in the Eastern Ghouta area to the East of Damascus.
