Syrian President Bashar Assad continued his bloody crackdown on
protesters on Friday, marking the 14 days of heavy shelling in Homs.
According to activist Hadi Abdullah, Friday's violence is the "the like
of which we have never seen before, with an average of four rockets
every minute,” AFP reported.
In a telephone conversation with the
Al Arabiya paper, Abdullah explained that the city's shelters were
over-crowded with residents fleeing the indiscriminate bombardment.
