Activists: Syrian troops shell Houla, site of last week's civilian massacre

Syrian forces shelled Houla early Thursday, opposition activists said, days after shadowy men went door-to-door in the town slaughtering entire families in their homes.

The attacks started shortly after United Nations observers left the town, said a local resident whom CNN is not naming for safety reasons.

Government troops fired dozens of mortars and rockets, killing two people, opposition activists said. An additional young boy was killed by sniper fire, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    I no longer believe everything I read about on the Syrian situation. Too much conflicting information, something is amiss!

    @ Ziva, i SO agree! And just the fact that Israel is pushing the US to get involved troubles me most. At first my thought was we MUST put a stop to this, but the more research i do, the more i think we arent getting facts at all!
