According to CNN, the Syrian Network for Human Rights says that at least nine people were killed in Syria on Sunday– six of those deaths being in Homs.
This happened because Syrian forces bombarded the city of Homs from helicopters on Sunday, said activists in Syria.
The Local Coordination Committees of Syria also says that one bomb is being shelled every 10 minutes from the military academy and is aimed at Homs’ al-Wair neighborhood.
This violence came three days after the U.N. brokered ceasefire was intended to begin and one day after the U.N. Security Council unanimously voted to send unarmed observers to monitor the ceasefire.
The U.N. Security Council’s 15 members decided to deploy 30 unarmed observers, which will pave the way for a larger 250 unarmed observer team. The 250 member team deployment will depend on how well the ceasefire holds up and whether discussions between Syria and U.N. special envoy Kofi Annan are able to quash the bloodshed.
