Syrian forces and militia loyal to President Bashar Assad have killed at least 85 people, including women and children, when they stormed a Damascus suburb after five days of fighting, opposition activists told Reuters.
Abu Ahmad al-Rabi', an activist in the adjacent district of Jdeidet Artouz said:
We documented 85 summarily executed, including 28 shot at a makeshift hospital after Assad's forces went in Jdeidet al-Fadel. We fear that the victims of the massacre are much higher.
