Syria's security forces relentlessly pounded the Homs neighborhood of Khaldiya on Wednesday - a densely populated refuge for people who've fled other besieged districts in the devastated city, activists said.
Activist Abu Abdallah said the Khaldiya situation is different and more dangerous because of the bulging displaced population from Karm al Zaytoun, Bab Sbaa, Jib Jandali, and Baba Amr.
Activists said residents heard artillery, mortars, and bombings Tuesday and Wednesday. Dwellings there have been burned and destroyed and there have been deaths and injuries. One man was killed by sniper fire, activists said.
At least 25 civilians, including four children and two women, have died and more than 150 have been injured during regime shelling in the neighborhood, the opposition Local Coordination Committees of Syria said Wednesday.FULL STORY
