Shelling in northern Syria on Tuesday killed and
injured 125 people, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
The head of the Britain-based opposition group said the shelling targeted the town of Aqrab, which is dominated by Alawites, who belong to the same sect as President Bashar al-Assad.
The opposition Local Coordination Committees reported a higher death toll, saying 200 people had been killed.
