Cairo (allAfrica.com) — Residents across Syria woke up to a particularly bloody day Wednesday, when at least 17 people -- including six children -- were killed in early morning violence, opposition activists said.300 were killed in the first half of this week. With the number of only 300, it is safe to say the Assad regime has not used any chemical weapons in the civil war. Assad appears to be waging war in the traditional Syrian manner.
In a country where scores of daily killings have become a tragic way of life, this week's violence has been especially lethal. More than 300 people have been killed in the first half of this week, according to tallies by opposition groups.
The surge comes despite a new plan by world leaders to stop the carnage and a push by opposition members to unite their efforts against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
