Syrian Forces Kill Hundreds in Attack Near Damascus

Syrian forces loyal to President Bashar Al-Assad stormed a town outside Damascus, leaving dead bodies piled on the streets and in a mosque during the single bloodiest day of fighting in the 17-month conflict.

Syrian forces killed 320 people during their assault in Dariya last week, the opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in a statement. Across the country, Assad’s forces killed 440 people Aug. 25, “the largest number of people killed in a single day,” the opposition Local Coordination Committees said in an e-mailed statement.

Assad yesterday vowed to win the fight “no matter the cost” and reiterated his charge that a “foreign plot” was behind the violence in the country, according to the SANA state news agency.
