February 9, 2017

Syrian government jets have bombed a rebel-held district of Homs city killing several people, rescue workers and a monitoring group reports.

The raids on Wednesday hit the al-Waer neighbourhood, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Syrian Civil Defence, a rescue service operating in rebel-held territory, said.

The Observatory put the death toll at eight and more than two-dozen wounded. The Civil Defence did not give a figure.

A military media unit run by Damascus ally Hezbollah said the army had fired rockets at militants in al-Waer, but that the insurgents had fired first.
