BEIRUT - Tanks fired on opposition districts in the central Syrian city of Homs on Friday, killing four and wounding scores more, activists said, in a resumption of heavy shelling from Syrian forces after a few days of relative calm.

"Thirty tanks entered my neighborhood at seven this morning and they are using their cannons to fire on houses," said Karam Abu Rabea, a resident of the Karm al-Zeitoun district in Homs.

An activist in Khalidiya, also a center of opposition to President Bashar Assad, said he had heard mortars landing intermittently in his neighborhood since the early hours of the morning.
