Syria rocket attack: moment of impact

Report by Sarah Johnston, Video by Sarah Johnston

New video shows the continuing battle around the outskirts of Damascus, as government forces try to recapture the suburb.

One video said to be shot in Daraya shows rockets launched from an aircraft, leaving a trail of white smoke in the sky and crashing into buildings causing thick clouds to rise over rooftops.

Another video shows the moment of impact as a rocket hits buildings below.

Daraya is one of a series of interconnected Sunni Muslim suburbs that ring Syria's capital and have been at the forefront of the 21-month-old revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.
