A Syrian activist group says more than 100 people have been killed in a new ‘massacre’ in the central province of Hama.
The Revolution Leadership Council of Hama quoted witnesses and residents as saying the village of Tremseh was shelled by Syrian troops and later stormed by Shabbiha militia.
Several people in the village were killed by the shelling and more were shot later in the head execution-style, they added, putting the death toll at around 200.
The state-run SANA news agency said there had been clashes between the army and an “armed terrorist group” in the village but gave no overall death toll.
“There were heavy losses among the ranks of the terrorists,” said the report, adding that three soldiers were killed.
