DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:50 P.M.) – The Islamist rebels that agreed to reconcile with the Syrian government and remain in the Al-Wa’er District of Homs launched a new attack on Sunday, targeting civilians in nearby neighborhoods.
According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, the Islamist attack killed two young men and wounded another bystander as they were walking in a nearby neighborhood in Homs City.
This attack by the Islamist militants in Al-Wa’er resulted in a powerful response from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on Sunday afternoon.
The Syrian Arab Army reportedly retaliated with heavy mortar and artillery shelling, achieving direct hits against the enemy forces in Al-Wa’er.
