Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that these malicious massacres and inhuman atrocity signalled an inevitable fall of Syrian regime.
Delivering a speech at his party's meeting in northwestern province of Kocaeli, Erdogan said that Assad regime attacked on the village of Traymseh in Hama with heavy weapons, stating that nearly 270 Syrians including women and children were killed in this attack.
Erdogan said that those who attacked on their own people would fall, stating that all dictators were coward.
Sooner or later these bloodthirsty vicious people would have to pay the price, he said.
Turkey would keep assisting Syrian people, he said.
Nearly 40,000 Syrians who fled clashes in their country were staying in Turkey currently, he added.
Meanwhile, a statement by the spokesman for the U.N. observers in Syria said on Saturday, the attack in the Syrian village of Tremseh appeared to target the homes of army defectors and activists, and assailants used weapons including artillery and mortars.
The observers entered the village on Saturday after activists said about 220 people had been killed there by President Bashar al-Assad's troops.
The observers saw damaged houses and a burned school and planned to return to the village on Sunday, the statement said, adding the number of casualties was unclear.
