Fresh air strikes pounded the rebel-held Syrian town of Douma Saturday, rescuers and a monitor said, after a night of heavy bombing on the opposition holdout outside Damascus.Air strikes and shelling on Friday left 40 civilians dead including eight children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group.Syrian troops matched the renewed bombardment Friday with a ground operation in the orchards surrounding Douma.The resumed assault comes after the apparent failure of negotiations between Jaish al-Islam and regime backer Russia over a rebel withdrawal from Douma.
