Syria warplanes raid Damascus suburb on last truce day
AMMAN Oct 29 (Reuters) - Syrian warplanes bombarded a rebel stronghold on the edge of Damascus on Monday, the final day of a truce marred by air raids and fighting between the two sides across the country, opposition activists said.
They said jets targeted Harat al-Shwam, a residential neighbourhood a few kilometres east of the capital which President Bashar al-Assad's forces had tried to storm, encountering stiff resistance.
