Syrian Army Executed More than 100 in Recent Months

Security forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad executed more than 100 people, most of them civilians, in the last four months, according to human-rights activists. A report by the Cable News Network on Sunday showed 13 people who were apparently lined up and shot against the wall in Idlib, near the Turkish border.

The Associated Press reported, Monday, that three people were wounded when Syrian forces opened fire, across the Turkish border, on protesters in a refugee camp near the town of Kilis. Turkey protested the fire. A provincial governor said two people brought to Turkey died, Monday, of wounds suffered in clashes in Syria, earlier in the day.
