Opposition: Syrian Forces Pummel Homs From the Sky
Government helicopters pounded the besieged city of Homs from the sky, opposition activists said Sunday, three days after a so-called cease-fire in Syria.
In addition, “one bomb is being shelled every 10 minutes from the military academy, aiming at al-Wair neighborhood in Homs,” said the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, a network of opposition activists.
At least nine people died across Syria on Sunday, including six in Homs, said the opposition Syrian Network for Human Rights. Two died in Aleppo a day after they were injured when regime forces opened fire at a funeral procession, the group said.
The state-run Syrian Arab News Agency blamed “armed terrorists” for violating the cease-fire, quoting an unnamed military official’s assessment that the groups “have hysterically escalated their aggressions on the army, the law enforcement forces and the civilians.”
