9 rebel fighters killed in clashes with regime forces northern Homs
(Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 9 rebel fighters have been killed in the northern countryside of Homs as Syrian regime forces backed by Shi'ite militia launched major attack on the rebel-held strongholds, activists said on Sunday.

Rebels had thwarted the assault despite heavy air and ground attack, Zaman al Wasl reporter said 

In eastern homs, a massive influx reported by Syrian Christian families of the ancient town of Sadad into government-held areas as Isis makes more gains after taking back the nearby town of Maheen days ago.

Last week, hundreds of rebel fighters and civilians were evacuated from Homs' last rebel-held neighborhood, al-Waer, following a deal with the government turned over al-Waer to government forces in exchange for humanitarian aid for besieged residents.

More than 250,000 people have been killed in Syria's revolution since it erupted in March 2011 with anti-government protests.
