Fighting intensifies in Syria

Posted: Updated:

SYRIA (CBS) - Fighting is intensifying in Syria between government troops and rebel forces.

The rebels have made a push and are close to capturing the airport in the capital of Damascus. The Syrian Air Force has responded, dropping bombs on rebel positions. This is the most intense fighting near the Syrian capitol since July when rebels captured several suburbs.

Government troops were able to regroup and repel the forces. This time, the rebels are better armed with anti-aircraft weapons.
