Syrian troops committed another massacre in Idlib on Monday, murdering 55 people as President Bashar al-Assad's crackdown shifts into high gear.
Focal points of unrest such as Idlib, Rastan, and Homs have all been subjected to intense artillery and sniper fire in recent weeks.
The lastest massacre comes one day after the Syrian regime killed at least 47 women and children in a massacre in the Karm al-Zeitoun neighborhood in Homs.
Activists said that death toll from Mondays violent crackdown on protesters topped 114 people, mostly in Homs and Idlib.
al-Arabiya reported scores of tanks were deployed in and around Damascus as troops loyal to Assad launched a crackdown in the al-Assaly neighborhood.
Assad's brutal year-long bid to end a popular uprising against his regime has resulted in at least 7,500 civilians dead and tens of thousands arrested.
Reports of systemic rape and torture of political prisoners, and mass summary executions, have become the norm in Syria.
Meanwhile, Western diplomats clashed

The more the msm reports, the worse Obama looks
1400 years of Arab springs, millions of barrels of blood, thousands of mountains of bodies. And our press believes Imam Obama will end the cycle of Islam. What a joke.
Yes, and this is exactly why our corrupt MSM has systematically sanitized the news for the last three years.
No gunwalker news
No ObamaCare cost news
No widespread Solyndra failure news and the taxpayer expense
No foriegn policy failure news
No widespread coverage of the rising cost of gas due to Obama
Yep, it’s all peaches and cream and the economy is improving. (The unicorn parade starts at 3 p.m. today.)
Too bad I can’t seem to care about the Syrians. They are no friends of ours. Let the other Arab nations take care of their own. Of course, that’s what they are doing. Since the Arab way to kill those who disagree with you.
>It’s the nature of Islam. Submit or be killed.<
Let’s see what will happen when or if Assad loses the fight and his adversaries take their revenge.
I feel now like people behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War...I don’t trust anything that comes from US media anymore, and I look to foreign news sources now (along with FR, of course), for my news.
>Let the other Arab nations take care of their own.<
Arab nations taking care of their own? Are you trying to start a new trend?
But criticised Israel about Gaza....
The Syrian government may be nasty, but they don’t waste their time going around shooting women and children on purpose. What would be the point?
They are shooting rioters, looters, and revolutionaries on the other side. Their aim may not be very good, but that’s what happens when fanatics start rioting and burning down cities.
In other words, there is killing on both sides. And bad as the current government may be, the protestors represent fantical Muslim terrorists who would be even worse.
This article is pure lunatic leftist propaganda.
It's hard to know which side is which and who is speaking for whom. I'm sure there were reasons to kill women and children just as there are reasons a sergeant went on a murder spree doing a similar act( according to MSM news) in Afghanistan. The stories parallel but one is front page news, the other, this one is a back burner. Both stories are vague at best so far.
From this article I have zero idea as to whom was killed and for what reason. It's good to know they were just revolutionaries and crooks.
