On eve of ceasefire, more Syrian deaths

| No Comments

Fierce fighting broke out across the nation of Syria the other day, just three days before a deadline set by the U.N. to ceasefire, BBC reported amidst unconfirmed reports of over 100 deaths.

The U.S. Ambassador to Syria, Robert Ford, told the Washington Post that the United States and the Friends of Syria group were closely monitoring the situation from above to ensure that the required actions take place, but that armored vehicles and artillery units are still within firing range of civilians.

Syria continues to claim that it is merely defending itself against foreign powers such as Saudi Arabia and the U.S., who have thrown their support behind the rebels, Bloomberg Businessweek reported.
