Syrian government renews attacks on Homs

  • Latest Updates - US Attacks Syria

    Syrian government forces renewed their attacks in the north of Homs on Monday as helicopters were seen firing on rebel strongholds.

    Joint UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan has voiced his concern over civilians that may be trapped in Homs and al-Haffa, a town in the Latakia province.

    U.S. State Department officials fear the government may be planning "another massacre".

    Annan brokered a six-point peace plan, including a ceasefire, which came into nominal effect two months ago but has since been virtually abandoned.

    According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 74 people were killed across Syria on Monday.
