For most of the last six years of the war in Syria, the capital has been shielded from the destruction and desperation in much of the country.

Now rebels and fighters launched a surprise attack on government forces, making significant gains in the eastern part of the city.

The advance on Sunday was launched from the Jobar neighbourhood, linking it to Qaboun and other areas in the north which have been under government siege.

Government troops responded with shelling and sniper fire and the fighting came very close to the Old City of Damascus.

Is it a serious blow to the Syrian President? And could the rebels become even stronger?
