AMMAN - Heavy fighting broke out on Wednesday near the main rebel stronghold of Baba Amro in the city of Homs when Syrian troops began a ground assault, opposition sources said.

"The army is trying to go in with infantry from the direction of al-Bassel football field and fierce confrontations with automatic rifles and heavy machine guns are taking place there," activist Mohammad al-Homsi told Reuters from Homs.

He said the military had shelled the area heavily on Tuesday and overnight before the ground attack started.
