The United States on Monday denounced Syrian President Bashar Assad regime’s after continued attacks against the "innocent civilian populations of Homs and the Damascus area," the State Department said.

In a statement to the press, Patrick Ventrell stated the US is calling on the international community to "make clear to the Assad regime that it must cease these attacks and immediately allow humanitarian organizations, including UN agencies and the Red Cross, safe access to evacuate the wounded and provide life-saving medical treatment and supplies."

The State Department also condemned attacks on Syrian cities by Iranian backed Hezbollah fighters, "as they assist the regime in its brutal suppression of legitimate calls from the Syrian people for freedom, dignity, and democracy," it said in the statement.
