Fresh fighting has been reported around Syria’s capital, Damascus, and in the northern city of Aleppo, where rebels are trying to secure their positions.
Most areas of Aleppo where rebels are entrenched have been bombarded by government forces and clashes have been reported in several districts.
The violence comes after a UN General Assembly vote to criticise the Security Council for failing to act on Syria.
Meanwhile, Iranian state media say 48 Iranian pilgrims have been kidnapped.
The pilgrims were abducted from a bus near the Sayeda Zeinab shrine outside Damascus, which is holy to Shia Muslims, Iranian media reports say.
Iranian officials blamed “terrorists” for the abduction.
In Damascus, fighting was reported in the Tadamon district on the southern edge of the city, which was earlier stormed by government forces.
