Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad and his regime have been dealt a series of powerful blows in recent days, most notably a Damascus bomb attack that struck at the heart of the regime. Assad appeared on Syrian television on Thursday to swear in his new minister of defence Fahd Jassem al-Freij, however video has emerged on YouTube of burning tanks and street fighting across the country, as well as the takeover of a Turkish border post. All of this suggests that the FSA (Free Syrian Army) are making progress in this 17-month civil war. Syria's Assad regime under mounting pressure.
