Shelling Continues in Syria as Protesters Hit the Streets
Shelling continued in the besieged Syrian city of Homs early Friday and demonstrators hit the streets, a day after the United Nations General Assembly passed a non-binding resolution condemning the brutal government crackdown on anti-government protesters.
The shelling in the flashpoint city marks the 14th consecutive day of constant bombardment as Syrian forces targeted stronghold neighborhoods of Baba Amr, Inshaat and Khailidya.
CNN journalists in the country witnessed the devastation in places such as Homs .
The bombardment left the streets deserted and many too scared to leave their homes. Those who ventured out feared snipers or government tanks. Inside some damaged homes was the evidence of families that had hastily fled, leaving behind clothes, children’s shoes and toys.
Nine bodies were found Friday morning in several neighborhoods in Homs, said the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition activist group.
