Homs, Syria, Dec. 22, 2018. The Osama Castle, which is known as Homs Archaeological Castle, overlooks the neighborhoods of Bab Darib, Bab al-Turkman, Bab Sebaa and Karam al-Shami. The Syrian government forces used the castle as a military barracks, from which they shelled the neighborhoods of the city during the past years. The Syrian government forces also prevent civilians from entering or approaching the castle.
