Syrian government troops have launched a wide-scale operation Sunday in Midan, Tadamun, Zamalka, Harasta, Jobar, Qaboun and nearby allies. The operation continued as a result of the armed response from the other armed parties.

Syrian army armored vehicles patrolled the streets of the Syrian capital's historic Midan quarter. Shelling and gunfire rattled the southern neighborhood of Tadamon. Protesters burned tires to block major roads.

For the first time since the revolt began, the opposition says, armored vehicles were posted in the sprawling Midan quarter, near the old walled city and modern business and office districts. The opposition accused government forces of firing mortar rounds at insurgent positions.

The capital clashes mark a new escalation in the 16-months unrest and cast dim shadow over the prospect of a foreseeable solution in the near future.

The Fre Syrian army fighters, comprised of defectors, Islamists and others, have applied the Guerrilla-type clashes against the regular Syrian forces.
