Early morning we knew from news wires and agencies that official sources in Damascus that the Syrian Arab army will put an end to those militant gangs in Bab Amr in Homs today.
This meant one thing a major offensive that would include ground operations in the old quarter that has been isolated from the world since the morning , we do not know anything except for hours now that 20,000 Syrian citizen are trapped there along with 4 Foreign journalists. “ Warning +18 : As well the bodies of Marie Colvin and Rami Ochlik”
The Syrian Arab army tried to storm the quarter from 4 areas and they have failed thank God 1000 times despite it was a ground attack. The Free Syrian army and the resistance in Bab Amr reportedly did a fantastic job in resisting the SAA. The SAA reached to an area called Hakora in Baba Amr and had to pull back because of the resistance in the area.
The FSA has reportedly lost a lot of men and arms especially that it does not own tanks as well their priority is transfer the women and children to safer places.
You must know that it is snowing since afternoon in Homs , despite the weather helped the people of Bab Amr , unfortunately the people in city of Homs are suffering the lack of electricity and fuel and you can imagine how they feel right now.
By the way here is a very rare interview for late journalist Anthony Shahid before 2 hours of his murder in Idlib , Syria.
