Syrian forces have killed at least 30 civilians in tank assaults near the city of Hama and in a town near the border with Turkey. The Syrian National Organization for Human Rights said 26 people were killed and dozens wounded when troops, backed by tanks and armored vehicles, overran Soran and other villages north of Hama.

Hama has been the focus of a 10-day assault to crush street protests against President Bashar al-Assad's autocratic rule. Four people were also killed in Binnish, around 30 kilometers from the border with Turkey, in an attack that has witnessed an escalation in protests demanding the removal of President Assad during the fasting month of Ramadan.
