Fierce clashes erupted in Damascus between the Syrian army and Islamist militants who launched a surprise attack through secret tunnels leading to the government-held Old City. Syria’s capital had been rocked by a string of deadly terror attacks earlier.
The surprise raid began in the Jobar neighborhood east of the Old City early on Sunday with militant car-bomb and suicide attacks, Syrian state news agency SANA reported. The attackers poured into the government-controlled area through a network of underground tunnels in the area, the report added.
