EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: REUTERS CANNOT INDEPENDENTLY VERIFY THE CONTENT OF THIS VIDEO, WHICH WAS OBTAINED FROM A SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITE Rebel fighters are on the move in suburban Damascus. They've set their sites on this base used by government forces. This barn offers some cover, as does this wall but soon -- they're charging the building, and beginning an uneasy room by room search for soldiers inside, in this latest video posted to a social media website whose content Reuters cannot independently verify. While one group advances, another zeroes in on this tank -- cheering as it bursts into flames. In Douma, locals navigate smoke-filled streets after air raids on the city's main market. An ambulance arrives on the scene but their relief is short-lived. Rebels say President Bashar al Assad's forces fired on the vehicle from the air, delivering a pointed reminder that the notion of calm in a place like Syria is temporary.
