34 regime troops from Tartus killed in two weeks
(Zaman Al Wasl)- Syrian regime mourned 34 troops, including 11officers, from coastal province of Tatrus, have been killed in the last two weeks across Syria, local reporter said.

The mourning posters have been sweeping the roads, streets and pro-regime social media as Syrians celebrate the sixth anniversary of the Syrian revolution.

Residents of Tartus, the regime's powerful militant supplier, say no men left in the city. Funeral everywhere and everyday.  The daily bloodshed pushed supporters of Bashar al-Assad to demand a peace solution ending 6 the 6-year-old war.

Tartus suffered decades of negligence and constant resentment in comparison with the next-door city of Latakia where services and tourism and fortune.

Latakia, has also mourned at least 81 regime officers and soldiers who had been killed in three weeks.

The Syrian regime has not published official figures on its war dead. Syrian state television mostly fails to broadcast news of Alawite soldiers killed, instead playing up the deaths of their Sunni comrades, in a bid to shore up Sunni support, according to the Telegraph.

The Alawites, the Assad family's sect, have seen up to a third of their young men killed in the Syrian conflict and mothers are now refusing to send their sons to war.

The peaceful demonstrations that ended up with deadly war carried out by the Syrian regime and key regional players has killed at least 465,000 people, including 150,000 children and has displaced over 12 million people.
