Barack Obama condemns military assaults on Homs

President Barack Obama has called the Syrian army's mortar and rocket assaults in the city of Homs on Thursday, as disgraceful violence. US State Department said that efforts were ongoing to set
jointly a group of countries interested to end Syria crises. Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs Jeffrey Feltman has been dispatched to Morocco, France and Bahrain to discuss the group's membership and its mandate, AP reports.

The government’s aim to crush rebel forces killed 110 people on Thursday and hundreds of people have been killed over the past week. Syria put a ceiling on access to foreign media and victim figures cannot be independently confirmed.

International community is making efforts to find a solution for the crises. Meanwhile German authorities welcomed the chances of Arab League return in the country. German foreign Minister, Guido Westerwelle said that starting the Arab League mission in assistance with UN would create peace and balance in the region. Russia and China denied a UN resolution presented by Arab and European countries demanding President Bashar al-Assad to transfer the overall authority to his deputy. 

Catherine Ashton, European Union Foreign Affairs chief, demanded Russia to be on familiar terms with the truth of the situation. 

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the terrible violence of the military assault in Homs.  Homs, Syria's third-largest city has been a foremost hub of turbulence in the 11-month rebellion in opposition to President Bashar al-Assad's rule.
