Homs Town of Tir Mealla Defies Assad

Rebels drive back regime efforts to control the northern countryside of Homs

Opposition factions in the northern countryside of Homs managed to repel an attack on the town of Tir Mealla on Thursday, October 22, amid an unprecedented bombing campaign targeting the region.

Media activist Mahmoud Alloz said fighters of the northern Homs operations room destroyed five tanks and military vehicles in the vicinity of the town.

Russian warplanes carried out around 40 sorties on the area around Tir Mealla, Sesil, Mahatta and other areas in the northern countryside of the province, in the largest escalation of its kind since the start of the military campaign a week ago.
