Syrian government has denied as baseless reports about shelling the central city of Homs at the hands of the Syrian military forces, the state-run news agency says.

The government "denies shelling by the army in certain districts of Homs, as peddled by television stations that are inciting violence," SANA news agency reported on Saturday.

The denial came after Syrian opposition groups claimed that dozens of civilians have lost their lives in an attack by the army on the violence-hit city.

Syria's government, however, blamed the attack on “armed gunmen.”

“The civilians shown by satellite television stations are citizens who were kidnapped and killed by armed gunmen," SANA said.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March. Many people have lost their lives in the country over the past ten months.

The West and the Syrian opposition accuse the government of killing protesters. But Damascus blames ''outlaws, saboteurs and armed terrorist groups'' for the unrest, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
