Syrian rebels and government troops clashed Sunday in restive districts of Damascus, a monitoring group said, as representatives of the warring sides met for peace talks in Geneva.Aleppo, once Syria's commercial capital and now ravaged by nearly 18 months of all-out war, was also the scene of fresh violence.According to reports cited by the Observatory, a 15-year-old boy was shot dead by an army sniper in the divided city. His death came a day after 18 people, among them six children, were killed in an air strike targeting another opposition-held district in the city, the Observatory added. The conflict in Syria, that has lasted nearly three years, has killed more than 130,000 people and forced millions more to flee.
