Amateur videos uploaded on February 17, show what appeared to be air strikes hitting the besieged al-Waer suburb of Homs in Syria.The footage shows explosions followed by clouds of smoke rising over buildings. In one video, people can be seen scrambling amid scenes of chaos inside a building in the immediate aftermath of a blast. For months, the rebel-held Al-Waer district had been spared the intense bombardment by Syrian and Russian air forces suffered by other areas controlled by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's opponents. But the area has been hit by strikes lately, with the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights saying 27 people have been killed in the neighbourhood over 11 days of violence.
