Activists are reporting fierce battles and shelling in suburbs of the Syrian capital where the opposition claimed a chemical weapons attack this week killed more than 100 people.

In neighboring Lebanon, the army said in a statement that troops have captured a truck with “large amounts” of gas masks in the southeastern village of Kfeir near the border with Syria.

It did not say whether the masks were heading to Syria.

The offensive entered its third day Friday and comes as U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged the Syrian government to allow a U.N. team now in Damascus to swiftly investigate the alleged attack.

Ban is also sending U.N. disarmament chief Angela Kane to Syria to press for an investigation.

The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported the fighting Friday.

(Reuters) – Pakistan accused Indian troops of firing shells across the disputed border in Kashmir on Monday and tensions ran high in both countries after last week’s killing of Indian soldiers set off a wave of skirmishes between the two nuclear-armed rivals.

Clashes flared along the 740-km (445-mile) Line of Control that divides Kashmir on August 6 when five Indian soldiers were ambushed and killed in the Poonch region. New Delhi blamed the attack on the Pakistan army. Islamabad denied involvement.

While tit-for-tat shelling and machinegun fire are common along the LoC the current round of fighting is one of the most intense since a ceasefire signed in 2003. It has been linked to protests in both countries and rowdy scenes in India’s parliament. Under pressure from opposition politicians, the government has hinted at retaliation.
