Syrian rebels ‘kill 27 secret policemen and soldiers’ | guardian.co.uk

Syrian rebels claimed to have killed 27 members of the security forces in clashes on Thursday – providing more evidence that the country is sliding into a state of permanent armed insurgency.

On the day that saw the Syrian uprising enter its 10th month, Human Rights Watch (HRW) named 74 senior officials and commanders – including President Bashar al-Assad – who it said should face investigation for crimes against humanity.

The claim that 27 soldiers and secret policemen had been killed by armed defectors in attacks on three separate roadblocks in Deraa near the Jordanian border – where the unprecedented unrest began peacefully in March in the early days of the Arab spring – was made by the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
