Syrian siege of Homs is genocidal, say trapped residents | World news | The Guardian

By

Residents inside the besieged city of Homs claim they are under “genocidal attack” from a Syrian regime apparently deaf to international opinion and determined to “bomb, starve and shoot” them into submission.

On Tuesday night the city was under massive continuous bombardment, witnesses told the Guardian, with rockets raining down from the sky every few minutes, and helicopters and fighter planes circling overhead. They said Syrian army tanks had encircled opposition-held suburbs, in preparation for what they feared was a final, deadly ground assault.
