BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – Approximately one hour ago, two rockets fired by jihadist rebels in northern Homs hit the provincial capital’s densely populated Al-Zahra neighborhood, causing significant damage and casualties.
According to a military source in Homs, at least one civilian has been reported dead and 17 others have been found wounded after the two rockets struck residential areas in Al-Zahra tonight.
The source added that the rockets came from the north and since the attack, the Syrian Air Force has been conducting raids over the Al-Houla Plain.
The jihadist attack required local firefighters to rush to the Al-Zahra neighborhood and put out the flames that were quickly spreading across the area.
