Regime warplanes Thursday launched 25 air raids Thursday on the southeast Damascus suburb of Mliha, a key rebel bastion President Bashar Assad's regime has struggled for weeks to recapture, activists and an anti-regime monitoring group said.Regime ground forces also targeted the Mliha area with nine surface-to-surface missiles, as troops backed by Lebanon's Hezbollah battled rebel groups and their jihadist Nusra Front allies, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.The Observatory said that seven rebels were killed in the fighting, while battles raged in the city of Aleppo and on its northern outskirts.Most of the city, except the battered district of Waer, has returned to regime control after two years of bombardment and siege.Rebel groups control much of the city, while a regime post on the outskirts regularly targets rebel locations in Deir al-Zor.
