Homs: Summary of Events, Saturday, April 7, 2012

The tragedy continues

Assad regime started this military campaign against Homs since the beginning of February and it is still going on till today. The violence is escalating daily, and the shelling has reached most of the neighborhoods in Homs not leaving any place of refuge for the residents of Homs. Amid the severe shortage of food and medicine supplies, the city is heading towards a humanitarian disaster.

Qusoor was a refuge for residents displaced from other areas, but recently it is getting shelled and attacked, which resulted in the displacement of the neighborhood’s residents and the refugees from other neighborhoods. The neighborhood has been suffering for 8 days from shelling by all types of bombs, mortars and artillery which caused many buildings to break into fire, and resulted in killing and injuring many civilians.

Deir Baalba has been getting shelled for 7 days with different types of heavy weapons and shells, and Assad militia are committing all kinds of crimes and mass field executions.

Khaldiyeh, Bayada, Wadi al-Arab, Joret al-Shayah and Karabees were getting bombed with all types of weapons and artillery, which led to destroying many buildings and killing and injuring many civilians.

Old Districts of Homs are still under shelling for the fourth week in a row, with the bombing being concentrated on Bab Houd and the historical Souk. Most of the districts are still occupied by Assad forces, which are looting and vandalizing the area.

In the City Center, Assad forces attacked a Red Crescent vehicle with a grenade that was launched from the top of the city hall near the city center.
