BEIRUT - Syrian forces advanced on Monday for the first time in months into the rebel-held Khalidiya district in the central city of Homs, rebels in the neighborhood said.

Government forces fighting rebels seeking to topple President Bashar Assad have been bombarding 12 districts in the besieged city for four days.

"For the first time in months the Assad army has entered these areas in Khalidiya," a fighter told Reuters by Skype. "They have occupied buildings that we were stationed in and we had to evacuate."
