Warplanes pounded rebel-held areas of Homs in the Syrian city's heaviest onslaught for months yesterday, as Turkey reportedly returned cross-border shellfire for the second time this week.

The clashes came as the UN condemned the Syrian army's deadly shelling of a Turkish border town on Wednesday, and "terrorist" car bombs that killed almost 50 people in the war-torn country's second city Aleppo on the same day.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bombardment of Khal-diyeh district was the most intense of Homs in five months, and the first time the regime has deployed fighter jets against the city.
