    Two people killed in regime airstrikes on Waer neighborhood: activists

    (Zaman Al Wasl)- Airstrikes on the besieged al-Waer neighborhood in Homs city have renewed on Friday, killing two people, including a child, and wounded several more, activists said.

    25 civilians, including at least 7 children and a woman, have been killed and 130 people have been wounded by regime aerial bombing since the offensive began nine days ago on al-Waer as regime tightens the noose on the last rebel stronghold in the central city.

    Field activists said regime warplanes had conducted 6 raids early morning. Residents who wait the entry of UN aid convoy after four months waiting were ordered to stay at home and not the attend Friday Prayer over fears of new raids.
     
    A fragile UN-brokered truce was reached in December 2015 between rebels and regime forces followed by a series of negotiations to free more than 7350 detainees and lift the siege in order the rebel fighters leave their last stronghold in Homs, the city that once dubbed as the capital of the Syrian revolution.

     Syrian regime airstrikes and daily shelling have killed half million people and have displaced 12 more million from their homes since the revolution erupted in March 2011.
