Syrian troops bombard town near Lebanon border

Published: 02.15.14, 20:49 / Israel News

Syrian troops pressed an offensive near Lebanon on Saturday, heavily bombarding a rebel-held town and forcing many residents to flee to safety across the border, activists said.


The violence came as an activist group said the death toll in the three-year Syrian conflict has reached 140,000. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the figure includes civilians, rebels, members of the military, pro-government militiamen and foreign fighters.


The group based its count on information from a network of informants on the ground. (AP)
