Arab Observers Team in Homs Denies Reports of Coming Under Fire
The Arab League observer mission team in Homs on Sunday denied media reports that they came under fire.
A statement by the Arab League said that the team in Homs couldn’t reach a place where a car exploded at Bab Hood, leading to the burning of a number of shops and cars without casualties among civilians, and that the monitors couldn’t reach the place because of the crowds there.
The statement added that the observers tried to reach the scene of explosion later, but they heard random and sporadic shootings, so they didn’t go to the location.
