Syrian forces loyal to President Bashar Assad on Saturday seized the Deir Baalbeh district in the crucial battleground of Homs, AFP, citing the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reported.

The London-based Observatory warned that the fighting had triggered a humanitarian crisis in the city, referred to by anti-regime activists as "the capital of the revolution."

The group estimated that at least 153 people were killed on Friday in violent clashes throughout Syria, bringing the conflict's overall death toll to more than 45,000 people.
