Syrian activists said that 114 people were killed Monday as President Bashar Assad agreed to an Arab League plan to allow observers into the country.

Among the dead were 80 army defectors, Al Jazeera reported citing the Syrian Revolution General Commission, a coalition of 40 opposition groups.

According to the report, 72 army defectors were killed in the city of Idlib, where security forces proceeded to remove the bodies and "hide" them.

Syrian warplanes struck targets in Homs, where six people were killed Monday, the source told Al Jazeera.
