 叙利亚官方媒体报道说,一枚炸弹在大马士革国家电视台大楼爆炸,炸伤数人。

星期一的爆炸发生后,电视台继续播放节目。炸弹在大楼第三层爆炸。

一家支持政府的私人电视台播出了国家电视台大楼被炸毁的墙壁的画面,电线从坍塌的房顶上悬下,人们在烟雾弥漫的楼道里穿行。这家私人电视台今年6月也遭到致使人员死伤的袭击。

叙利亚反政府活动人士说,政府军星期一继续攻打北部城市阿勒颇。叙利亚人权了望台说,政府军对阿勒颇几个城区进行炮轰,至少两名平民被打死。

阿勒颇是叙利亚最大的城市,目前已经成为反抗叙利亚总统阿萨德政权的主要战场。据报道,叙利亚政府军在阿勒颇集结,预计将对反对派发起大规模攻势。

与此同时,美国参议员麦凯恩、利伯曼和格雷厄姆说,美国应当向反对派直接提供援助,包括武器、情报和训练。


Syrian state media say a bomb has exploded at the state television building in Damascus, wounding several people.

The station remained on the air Monday following the blast, which ripped through the third floor of the building.

A pro-government, private TV station, which itself was hit with a deadly blast in June, broadcast images of the building's damaged walls, wires dangling from a collapsed ceiling and people walking through smoke-filled hallways.

Syrian opposition activists are reporting continued attacks by government forces in the northern city of Aleppo Monday. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the army is shelling several neighborhoods in Aleppo, and that at least two civilians have been killed.

The country's biggest city has become a key battleground in the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's rule, as government forces are reported to have massed for what is expected to be a strong offensive against the opposition.  

Meanwhile, U.S. senators John McCain, Joseph Lieberman and Lindsey Graham say the United States should provide direct assistance to the opposition, including weapons, intelligence and training.
