Aid workers resumed humanitarian operations in Homs on Sunday, a day after they came under mortar fire in the besieged rebel heart of the Syrian city, evacuating dozens of civilians and sending in supplies to 2,500 people trapped by civil war. Homs governor Talal al-Barazi told Al Mayadeen television that 65 women, children and elderly men were able to leave the devastated neighborhoods in central Homs. Syrian state television said humanitarian supplies were also sent into districts where rebel fighters and civilians have been besieged for a year and a half, despite coming under fire from rebel forces.
