Troops continue Homs shelling
Saturday 03 March 2012
Troops are shelling several districts in the rebellious central Syrian city of Homs where the government is keeping a Red Cross convoy blocked from reaching thousands stranded in the area, activists have said.
Abu Hassan al-Homsi, a doctor at a makeshift clinic in the Khaldiyeh district of Homs said he has treated a dozen wounded.
The Local Co-ordination Committees activist network said mortars have slammed into Khaldiyeh, Bab Sbaa and Khader districts of the city early today.
The shelling comes amid a stand-off between the government and the Red Cross, which said authorities have prevented its convoy from delivering badly needed food, medical supplies and blankets to thousands of people still stranded in Baba Amr, the rebel-held district of Homs that was overrun by troops on Thursday.
