Damascus Dragged Into Syrian War With Latest Wave Of Bombings

NPR | Feb. 22, 2013 3:47 p.m.

Central Damascus had remained largely on the sidelines of the Syria war, but now the ancient city has been dragged into the battle with a wave of bombings on Thursday that left close to 100 people dead. Many military analysts say President Bashar al-Assad can’t win the war, but he’s a long way from losing. In the meantime, Syria may cease to function as a state, and the spillover is escalating in Lebanon, as evidence mounts that Hezbollah is playing a larger role in the fighting.
