'SYRIA - "Let us go, in God's name!" Is a desperate appeal by Christian families and Sunni Muslims trapped in the old town of Homs. We are talking about 800 civilians who today – refers one source of Fides engaged in negotiation attempts - "are in real danger. They have nothing, they live in panic, they are in the midst of bombing and fighting. "The families blocked in the city, asking the help of the UN, Red Cross, Red Crescent, so that their lives can be saved.
The families are located in areas of Warsheh, Salibi, Bustan Diwan, Ozon, Hamidiyeh, Wadi Sayeh, all in the heart of Homs. Currently, the Syrian army would be available for a cease-fire to release the civilians, but a faction of rebels holed up in the city, headed by leading Abu Maan, refuses to consent. '
