Abu Abdo Al Homsy, a resident of Homs, tells Al Jazeera that military troops have entered the besieged district of Bab Amr and begun searching houses.

Armed rebels who had occupied the neighbourhood for weeks withdrew on Thursday after nearly a month of bombardment and as the government's forces prepared for a ground assault.

Homsy said residents are now waiting for a planned visit from the Syrian Red Crescent aid society, but the bombardment continues.
