Syrian government denies baseless reports of army shelling city of Homs
The government “denies shelling by the army in certain districts of Homs, as peddled by television stations that are inciting violence,” SANA news agency reported on Saturday.
The denial came after Syrian foreign-backed opposition groups claimed that dozens of civilians have lost their lives in an attack by the army on the violence-hit city.
Syria’s government, however, mentioned the attack on armed terrorist groups.
“The civilians shown by satellite television stations are citizens who were kidnapped and killed by armed gunmen,” SANA said.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March. Many people have lost their lives in the country over the past ten months.
