World Bulletin/News Desk

Sixty-four people, including seven children and six women, were killed Monday by forces loyal to the Syrian regime in several cities across the country, activists said.

In air and ground attacks, Assad forces killed 16 people in the suburbs of capital Damascus and in Homs.

Regime forces killed 11 in Deraa, six in Aleppo, seven in Deir ez-Zor, four in Idlib, three in Quneitra, and one in Ar-Raqqah, said the London-based Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) which tracks civilian and dissident casualties.

Syrian national news agency SANA announced that regime forces had made major gains against opposition fighters in operations across the country.

More than 100,000 people have been killed in the more than three year old conflict, according to the UN, while over two million people have fled the country to seek refuge in other countries, mostly neighboring Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq.
