During the Arab spring, Homs in Syria was called the heart of the revolution in the country.Â In the ongoing civil war, Homs became an opposition stronghold and the Syrian government launched a military assault against the city in May 2011.
By 14 January 2014, the government was in control of Homs except for the Old City, which remained in rebel hands and under government siege.
The Syrian army’s artillery shelling andÂ warplane bombing has left much of the city completely destroyed and thousands dead.
In December 2015, the last rebel forces withdrew from Homs as per a UN mediated ceasefire.
We follow the every day life in Homs, seen from abouve and mixed with memories from the eyes of 24-years old Mahmoud Eskaf.
