Regime halts attack in Homs as rebels threaten to cut off water supply
 
(Zaman Al Wasl)- Syrian regime halted its attack on rebel-held area in central Homs and Hama provinces after rebels cut the main water supplies to government areas, pro-regime activists said Tuesday.

The regime has succumbed to the threat of cutting off drinking water on the Salamyiah region in the eastern countryside of Hama, one of Bashar Assad's manpower supplies.

Regime fighter jets conducted more than 150 airstrikes since Sunday, killing at least 14 civilians in a de-escalation zone north of Homs city.
 
Rebels said they thwarted the attack by regime army and allied militias, leaving 30 troops dead.

Homs was an opposition stronghold in Syria war, but fell to regime forces in 2015.

Russia’s defense ministry and opposition agreed to set up a “de-escalation” zone in northern Homs last August. Such a fragile ceasefire comes under several violations by the regime forces.
