U.S. Condemns Assad's Attack on Homs


The United States condemned on Sunday the brutal attack by Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s army on rebel strongholds in Homs.

“The United States denounces the Assad regime’s continued attacks against the innocent civilian populations of Homs and the Damascus area,” said State Department Spokesman Patrick Ventrell, adding, “In the face of the Assad regime’s unrelenting attacks and its unconscionable use of chemical weapons, the United States continues to stand firmly on the side of the Syrian people in their fight for freedom. We are expanding assistance to the civilian opposition and have expanded our assistance to the Supreme Military Council to strengthen its effectiveness on the ground.”
