Syrian opposition fighters have re-entered the historic town of Maalula north of Damascus on Saturday.

The director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that fierce clashes were under way between rebel fighters and regime troops in Maalula, which the rebels have entered and are trying to gain control of. 

Government forces repelled a rebel advance into Maalula in September, after heavy fighting that prompted most of the town's residents to leave.
