Syrian forces kill four civilians in Idlib

AMMAN - Syrian troops shot dead four civilians on Wednesday in a village in the northwestern province of Idlib, a prominent activist said, as tanks continued to sweep the hill area near Turkey.
"The four died in random firing on the village of Rama from tank machineguns, which has become customary in these unjustified assaults. The tanks started firing on surrounding woods then directed their fire on the village," Ammar Qarabi, president of the Syrian National Human Rights Organization, told Reuters.
