An estimated 10,000 armed men equipped with highly-sophisticated weapons, including anti-tank missiles, have reportedly entered Syria to help fuel the unrest in the country, Press TV has learned.
Informed sources in the Qusayr village in Homs say the terrorists crossed into Syria from the Lebanese border and that they have taken positions in the suburbs of the restive city.
Meanwhile, Syrian forces are still tracking armed groups fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad across the country.
Syrian authorities say while the Joret al-Shayyah neighborhood in Homs has been cleared of armed groups and calm has been restored in the area, clashes are still ongoing in al-Hamidiye, al- Khalidiya and Homs’ old neighborhood.
Syrian forces have also discovered the decomposing remains of nine people in the Karam Zaytoon district of Homs, who were killed by armed men.
