Fresh clashes reported in Damascus
Fresh air strikes have been reported in the Syrian capital of Damascus and the second city of Aleppo, where rebels are seeking to secure their positions.
Witnesses told Associated Press there was "heavy bombing" in the capital, the scene of fierce clashes yesterday as regime forces stormed the last remaining rebel stronghold.
MiG fighter jets have also been attacking Free Syrian Army positions in northern Aleppo, according to Sky reporters.
Meanwhile the Iranian Defence Minister, Ahmad Vahidi, warned today of "very bad implications in the region" if the West seeks to arm opposition groups in Syria.
Mr Vahidi said "the region will face a major crisis" if foreign forces intervene militarily, the AFP news agency reports.
Russia has claimed last night's UN resolution criticising the Security Council and the Assad regime will undermine peace efforts.
The Saudi-drafted resolution passed by 133 votes to 12, with Russia and China among those voting against.
However Moscow's representative to the UN, Viraly Churkin, said it offered "blatant support for the armed opposition" and would "aggravate confrontational approaches" to the crisis.
