Syrian rebels killed at least 80 government soldiers over the weekend in intensified attacks on army checkpoints and clashes with forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, a pro-opposition rights group said today. 

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said rebels had told it that units from the capital Damascus to the opposition stronghold province of Idlib had destroyed tanks and killed more than 100 soldiers. It was able to confirm the names of 80 through local doctors.

Syrian civil war has already begun. Russia and Iran are supplying arms to Bashar al-Assad. Bashar is obliged to protect his family and friends. He has full support of at least 6 million Syrians. Syrian civil war will continue to 2013.
