|Insurgents kill 14 civilians in Syria||
Fourteen civilians have been killed and 32 others injured in an insurgent attack on a Kurdish neighborhood in Syria’s northwestern city of Aleppo.
Over the past two days, the foreign-sponsored insurgents have also abducted over 100 civilians in the village of al-Zahraa and the town of Nebel near Aleppo.
On Thursday, the Syrian army cleared several areas in Aleppo of the insurgents and killed more than a dozen militants in and around the flashpoint city.
At least 40 insurgents and six Syrian soldiers were also killed in the latest round of fighting in the Babhood district of the western city of Homs on Thursday.
Reports said on the same day that members of the terrorist Free Syrian Army in the central town of Ghassaniya killed four people and kidnapped around 50 others for supporting the Syrian government.
The terrorist Free Syrian Army recently threatened to attack the airports of Aleppo and the capital, Damascus. It said in a statement that the airports “will be considered legitimate military targets as of September 10.”
Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil that began in Syria in March 2011.
Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving force behind the unrest and deadly violence, but the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said in an interview with al-Dunia TV channel, aired on August 28, that the “situation on the ground is better but we have not yet won -- this will take more time.”
