Syria: Homs: Summary of Events, Thursday, April 12, 2012

Cease of fire interrupted by bombing and gunfire.

Today was the first day of observing the cease fire, which was interrupted by bombing, shooting by snipers, mortar shelling, and activity by Assad army, checkpoints, and armored vehicles. Furthermore, no detainees were released.
The old districts of Homs saw some shelling by mortars that were launched from the Homs Citadel checkpoint, in addition to heavy gunfire in Bab Houd.

Snipers’ gunfire could also be heard in Joret al-Shayah and Hama Road, where at least one civilian was killed by the sniper located at the police headquarters. Another civilian was injured in the foot by a sniper’s bullet in Bayada. Snipers around the city targeted anyone in sight, which resulted in killing and injuring some civilians.

In Karabees, heavy gunfire could be heard from machine guns and tanks, targeting homes and civilians.

In Qusoor there was bombing, despite the cease fire that was announced by the Assad regime. This resulted in killing some civilians.

The bombing continues

Rural Homs

In Rastan, military checkpoints and armored vehicles are still spread all over the city and there was no sign of their withdrawal.

In Talkalakh, Assad thugs (shabiha) from nearby loyalist towns attacked Birj district and nearby farms in an attempt to intimidate the residents and to get a rise out of them. In this way, the thugs were hoping for an excuse to justify a reaction by the regime to be able to continue its crimes.
