An opposition group says US President Barack Obamas decision to delay possible military action in Syria while it is debated by Congress could "embolden" the forces of President Assad.

Syrian National Coalition spokesman Louay Safi called the decision a "failure of leadership" by the US.

Government forces resumed shelling of opposition-held parts of Damascus as Obama finished speaking today.

Syria denies US charges that its army used chemical weapons in August.
