Rebel forces had been closing in on the capital of Damascus but in recent weeks have been pushed back by pro- Assad forces. Assad made an announcement on Thursday that he was confident that there would be victories over the rebel forces.

This announcement comes as rebel fighters blew up an artillery depot in the city of Homs that killed 22 people.

Residents of the city said that they could hear multiple explosions for up to an hour after the initial blast.
