130 militants killed in 48 hrs in northwest Syria: Monitor
Fighting raged in northwest Syria on Thursday with clashes between regime forces and terrorist-led groups killing 130 combatants in two days, a war monitor said.
On the southwestern edges of the militant-run enclave, bombardment and fierce fighting since Tuesday have killed 89 anti-regime fighters and left 41 dead on the governmentÂ side, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
This included at least 14 anti-regime fighters and 21 pro-government forces killed early Thursday, it said.
On Wednesday, 17 civilians were killed in regime bombardment on several parts of the rebel region, he said.
Syria's war has killed more than 370,000 people and displaced millions at home and abroad since it started in 2011 with the repression of anti-government protests.
