1:15pm – Israeli PM blames Iran forBulgarian bus bombing.   “All the signs point to Iran. Just in the last few months, we saw Iran attempting to hurt Israelis in Thailand, India, Georgia, Kenya, Cyprus and other countries. Exactly 18 years after the infernal terror attack in the Jewish community center in Argentina, the murderous terror of the Iranians continues to hurt innocent people. This is a terrorist Iranian aggression revealing itself all over the world. Israel will respond forcefully to the Iranian terror.”  This is bad news..

according to leaked information coming from a soldier in the regime sympathetic with the revolution, the regime is planning to fire (sorry I am not familiar with the right to use here) toxic gases against the residents in Midan neighborhood that resulted in shortness of breath and heartburn in the respiratory tract. Medical masks are distributed among the residents and activists here.

1:08pm - Nahre Esha neighbourhood of Damascus

12:41pmSyria. The death toll has been raised to 77, according to the LCC:

In Daraa (Daeel, Zayzon, Tafas, Daraa Sad and Om Mayathen), there were 15 martyrs, 11 in Damascus Suburbs (Tal, Hama, Jisreen, Zamalka, Madaya, Maleha and Zabadani), 17 in different neighborhoods of Damascus city, 6 in Deir Ezzor, 8 in Homs, 6 in Hama, 8 in Idlib, 2 in Lattakia, 2 in Aleppo Suburbs and 2 in Swaida.

As we wrote about earlier, most of those killed were not in Damascus.

However, things inside Damascus are heating up, and the fighting appears as though it will rage well into the night. In the newest development, the LCC reports an intensification in Zamalka (map), where a battle between insurgents and the military has erupted. The area is reportedly being heavily shelled from artillery and helicopters.

With battles raging in the southwest, in places like Nahre Eshe, and in the south in Midan, Al Asali, and Hajar al Aswad, fighting in the northwest in places like Jobar and Qadoun, and now fighting in Zamalka, the capital is encircled in conflict on 3 sides (http://www.enduringamerica.com/home/2012/7/18/syria-and-beyond-live-coverage-un-talks-damascus-fights.html#1343)
