The United States State Department says satellite imagery of Syria shows escalating violence between government and rebel forces as the regime deploys armored divisions and artillery against major cities.

These satellite images show artillery positions of the Syrian army around several cities in the country, mainly in the north-east of Damascus and around the city of Homs.

This shows the determination of the President's forces put down the rebellion and retake control of the country. The positions of these the artillery batteries are not temporary, and suggest that these units of the Syrian army are ready to make artillery fire regularly.

The satellite image of Bab Amr, a neighborhood of Homs, appears to show armored tanks, deserted streets and craters, which could be the result of shelling from artillery guns or rocket launchers.

The satellite images show also mobile rocket launchers BM-21 and artillery vehicle 2S1, 2S3 and towed howitzer M-46 and D30 on the outskirts of Homs and Az Zabadani, Halbun and Rankus, cities near the Syrian capital of Damascus.
