Another night, another reported mass killing in Syria. This time it i s claimed 17 people including 10 women were slaughtered in Deraa where the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began 15 months ago.
In all, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 44 civilians were killed across the country on Friday while Damascus says 25 of its soldiers lost their lives.
Explosions were also heard through the night in the capital.
Meanwhile United Nations observers finally reached Mazreet al-Quebir where rebels say 78 people were massacred on Wednesday.
The team had previously been shot at and turned back by both residents and security forces.
They say they found evidence of armoured vehicles and heavy weapons which only the Syrian army has. And a stench of burning flesh hung over the village.
Damascus denies any involvement in the killings in Mazreet al-Quebir, however the UN says it believes government forces and allied militia carried out the recent Houla massacre when 108 people are believed to have lost their lives.
