More than 100 killed across Syria

14 November, 2012

DAMASCUS: More than 100 people were killed on Tuesday across Syria, including 41 civilians, 33 rebels and 32 soldiers, according to Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies for its information on a network of activists, lawyers and medics.

The bloodshed came as fierce battles and army shelling in Damascus province on Tuesday killed more than 40 people, most of them civilians, while warplanes again bombed Ras al Ain, a strategic town on the Turkish border, the watchdog said.

The fighting in the Eastern Ghuta area east of Damascus came after rebels launched an attack on public buildings in the area. The army used tanks to shell several towns east of Damascus, including Harasta, Zabadani and Irbin, killing at least seven civilians including an unknown number of women and children, the Observatory said.

The Syrian Observatory also reported fresh air raids on Ras al Ain, in northeastern Syria on the border with Turkey, and said 1,000 government troops had been sent to the town. In other violence, the army shelled rebel positions in the southern province of Daraa, in the central province of Homs, in Idlib in the northwest and in the northern city of Aleppo, said the Observatory.

End.
