Amateur video footage released on Friday shows what activists describe as Syrian army tanks firing on the town of Houla in Homs province.

In separate videos posted online, the aftermath of similar attacks on Houla was shown, with damaged buildings and debris on the streets. But the authenticity of the videos has not been verified.

Elsewhere in Syria, activists say government troops bombarded a rebellious suburb of the nation's capital with tank and artillery shells on Friday, killing dozens of people. The violence is part of a fierce government offensive aimed at regaining control of parts of Damascus suburbs where rebels operate.

In this picture taken on Sunday, June 24, 2012, a Syrian rebel fires his
weapon during clashes with the Syrian forces troops, at Saraqeb town, in
the northern province of Idlib, Syria.
