Beirut - Nearly 100 people were killed on Wednesday in violence across Syria, including 16 in Damascus, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Britain-based watchdog reported that 97 people were killed across Syria, including 46 civilians, eight rebel fighters and 43 regime troops. All but one of those killed in the capital were civilians.

Violence engulfed Damascus for a fourth straight day as a bombing killed three of the regime's top security chiefs who were meeting at the National Security headquarters, in an attack claimed by the rebel Free Syrian Army.

More than 17 000 people have been killed in violence since an anti-regime revolt broke out in Syria in March last year, according to the Observatory.

    I don't know what is the biggest joke out of these rights group, the UN Human Rights Council, the "Islamic Human Rights Commission" or this Syrian Observatory Council.

      Fidel, Again, a silly comment from you ! It really has no bearing on who funds the Syrian Observatory Council, actually not even if they are accurate. Even without their info, a 6 year old child can see what is happening in Syria. A country in flames, and on it last days of state tyranny !!

      Like every other post here, mine is just an opinion. If I believed my opinion to be an incontestable fact, I would not be posting on this thread.

      To Fidel, with his immature anti-West beliefs, Syrians are not revolting against the brutal dictatorship of Bashar Assad. This is a fake revolution. His beliefs render the reality he sees as fake.
