War planes targeted the city of Rastan in northern rural Homs with four air strikes, killing a father and his son, whose names are:
1. Mahmoud al-Taweel
2. Bilal Mahmoud al-Taweel
Helicopters also targeted the town of Deirfoul with two explosive barrels, and the village of al-Sa’an al-Aswad was also subjected to air strikes.
The Homs Association of Scholars- a religious association which is popular in rural Homs- issued a statement for the cancellation of Friday Prayers in the cities and villages or northern rural Homs, as a result of the intense air strikes witnessed by the area today. Civil groups also cancelled the Friday protests which have been taking place in the towns of rural Homs for the same reason.
