ANTALYA, Turkey - Syrian forces killed at least 13 civilians in the town of Rastan on Thursday in one of the most ferocious military assaults to crush dissent against Syrian President Bashar Assad's rule, human rights campaigners said,

The killings raise the death toll from attacks by tanks backed by troops that encircled several towns and villages in the central province of Homs this week to at least 56 civilians, they added.

"These are killings we documented, but the real numbers are definitely more. To those who want retribution I say: this is the age of international justice and the killers will be held accountable," Ammar Qurabi, head of the Syrian Human Rights Organization, said at a meeting of Syria's opposition in Turkey.
