Syrian rivals battle to gain upper hand

Rebels make gains in Quneitra province while government forces strengthen control of Damascus and several other areas.

    Fierce battles are raging in Syria's Quneitra province, where Syrian rebels are advancing after seizing several military posts.

    But elsewhere in the country, regime forces are strengthening their positions. The army has dislodged fighters from Homs, formerly known as the "capital of the Syrian revolution" and reconciliation deals have been reached with rebels in and around the capital Damascus.
