According to Al Jazeera field reporters, opposition forces are advancing on the city of Az-Zawiyah. There has been fighting in the suburbs and at the gates of the city.

While fighting has taken place inside the city, it is not clear whether it is coming from rebels already living there or forces that have breached city limits.

The battles are ongoing. Opposition forces have not gained control of Az-Zawiyah or Gharyan.
