ANTAKYA, Turkey - Syrian army bombardment has killed at least 115 people in the northern province of Idlib in the last two days, and troops also rounded up and shot 35 men during military operations in the region, two opposition activists said on Monday.

They said the killings occurred in al-Rouge, villages and farmland southwest of the provincial capital Idlib where forces loyal to President Bashar Assad have been trying to retake swaths of land that fell to rebels from the Free Syrian Army.

The activists reports, like others from inside Syria, could not be independently verified because Syria restricts access for foreign reporters.

"We have been collecting and identifying the bodies since yesterday," Mahmoud Ali, one of the activists, said from the region, using a Turkish mobile phone because the Syrian lines were cut.
