At least 107 people were gunned down Thursday by Syrian security forces in the city of Homs, Al Arabiya reported, a city that has seen some of the most violent elements of Syrian President Bashar Assad's crackdown on anti-government activists.

Syrian forces bombarded the western Syria city, bombing different neighborhoods including Baba Amr. The Syrian army has been bombing arbitrarily, Al Arabiya's Syria correspondent reported, including the indiscriminate shelling of residential buildings.The bombing, which has been a part of a five-day assault, has restricted the International Red Cross from operating in some of the effected areas, according to the report.

A total of 126 civilians were killed across Syria on Thursday, including seven soldiers in clashes near the southern city of Deraa, according to the report.
