Jabhat Fateh al Sham (formerly al Nusra front) terrorists with affiliated rebel groups shelled UN humanitarian aid convoy in Homs city near rebel-held al Waer district.
According to the source, militants could have used the attack ‘as a live shield’ so that the Syrian army could not return fire. Several civilians and servicemen were killed and wounded as the result of the attack. The militants reportedly used mortars and carried out sniper and machine-gun fire.
This is the third incident in a row where a convoy from Homs to al-Waer is attacked by militants.
