At the scene: Rami Ruhayem, BBC Arabic, south-eastern Damascus
The destruction is huge. The building in front of me on Koua Soudan Street is charred black in the middle. I'm told that there is a military headquarters on the ground floor and families also lived in the five-storey building.
There is a fruit stall with blackened oranges all over the floor.
I can also see a large number of charred vehicles, including a bus in the middle of the street which is almost completely destroyed and overturned. The smoke is still rising from one of the cars on the side of the street
Wonder what is the daesh demands for peace?

Surely the few nutters are not representative of the many , I think the vast majority from both factions only want to live their lives in peace ,
New year ,same old , sad thing is I think we're all becoming desensitized to the daily death and destruction that seems endemic in the Mid East these days , seems there's no end in sight.
