BEIRUT —

Syrian activists say a rocket attack by government forces has killed at least seven people in a village near the central city of Homs.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the attack on the village of Eastern Buwaydah took place Wednesday morning. It says children were among those killed.

Eastern Buwaydah is located between Homs and the Lebanese border.

Observatory director Rami Abdul-Rahman reported heavy fighting Wednesday in the area between government troops and rebels trying to topple President Bashar Assad's regime.

More than 70,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict since it began in March 2011.
