Over 2,000 dead in Syrian in two weeks of fighting
More than 2,000 Syrians - almost half of them pro-government forces - have been killed in just over two weeks of fighting in Syria, making it one of the worst death tolls in the country's civil war, opposition activists said Monday.


The report reflects a recent surge in deadly attacks by the al-Qaida-breakaway Islamic State group targeting government forces, signaling shifting priorities as Sunni militants seek to consolidate power in areas under their control.
