The Syrian air force bombed a rebel-held suburb of Damascus Monday, activists tell AP.
Mamoun Abu Saker, an activist on the ground, says at least four people are dead after three strikes by government forces. The attacks targeted homes in the town of Nashabiyeh.
President Assad and his forces are attempting to take back a rebel-held region near Damascus.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an organization with activists on the ground, confirmed the strike, although they did not confirm the death toll.
