Activists said that government troops used heavy weaponry in Homs’ Khalidiyah neighbourhood, firing shells at a rate of 10 per minute, making it the most intense shelling since the beginning of the uprising in March 2011.


Before Baba `Amr was completely destroyed and invaded back in February, there was intense shelling of al-Khalidiyya and it looks like they’re picking up where they left off. Several other neighbourhoods in Homs have been shelled over the past year.
