A heavy firefight has broken out in a main district of the Syrian capital Damascus, between Free Syrian Army rebels and forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, Reuters reported. This may be the beginning of the end for the old regime which has been under attack from within and without for nearly a year.

On Monday the sound of heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades echoed throughout the night from the most heavily guarded neighborhood of the capital, which is home to a number of security facilities.

The latest fighting comes one day after a car bomb in Syria’s second biggest city of Aleppo killed at least three people, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has said.

The UK-based rights group added it received phone reports from local residents who had seen bodies in the streets after Sunday’s blast near a state security office.

According to Syrian state news agency SANA, a law enforcement officer and a woman died in the explosion, and 30 civilians and law-enforcement officers were injured on Sunday when an armed group detonated a booby-trapped car while the authorities were dragging it out of a residential area in Aleppo province.
