Damascus was the site of two bombing attacks Wednesday, as the area near the Syrian Army and Air Force command headquarters went up in black smoke. The rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad continues to intensify, and the rebel Free Syrian Army has already taken ownership of the attack. Yet while the rebel group has claimed multiple deaths, both the opposition group and the government have a tendency to exaggerate successes and losses.
