Thousands have been displaced and their homes demolished in the Syrian city of Hama, according to UPI.
Syrian security forces have been going door to door asking people to leave their homes in the Mesha Alarbaeen neighborhood of Hama.
The neighborhood is considered the "main gathering place" for opponents of President Assad's government, a resident told CNN. Hama is a stronghold of anti-government activists.
One resident said she's been living on the street with her children for several days since her husband was detained and her home destroyed. Others have gone to neighboring areas in the province.
