The Syrian Army continues clashing bitterly with the rebels. Government troops are firing on rebel positions in many Syrian regions.

Fighting was especially fierce Saturday in the Idlib Province, in the north, with the insurgents driven out of two villages.

According to the SANA news agency, several terrorists were wiped out. Following major clashes at night government troops also bombed cities close to Damascus. Unrest in Syria has been on for more than a year now.

According to the UN, the death toll on both sides has since run into 8,000.

Meanwhile, the UN and Arab League special envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, is due to arrive in Moscow this Saturday. He will meet Russian leaders to take up ways to end violence in Syria.
