26 troops from Tartus killed in two weeks
(Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 26 regime troops and allied militants from coastal Tartus province killed by rebels in the last two weeks of March.

The death toll included a Colonel and two Lieutenants as most of slain fighters were killed in the Eastern Ghouta suburbs near the capital.

More than 119,000 pro-regime forces have been killed, including 62,000 troops, tens of thousands of loyalist militiamen, and 1,556 fighters from Hezbollah, according to an estimate by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Alawites-dominated areas still the main manpower supply for Bashar al-Assad's regime. The mourning posters and statements have been sweeping the streets and social media pages.

More than 470,000 people have been killed and 12 millions have been driven from their homes since Syria's revolution erupted in 2011.
