Under Siege: A Syrian Diary

Rafeeq (not his real name) is a resident of Homs, a city in central Syria caught in the middle of vicious fighting between pro- and anti-government forces.

He has agreed to share his diary, giving us rare insights into life under siege and daily shelling. His real identity has been concealed for reasons of his saftey. Al Jazeera cannot independently verify the accounts given by him.
