Violence continues in Syria, opposition pins hopes on new UN envoy


15:16, August 22, 2012

DAMASCUS, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- As violence raged on Tuesday in several Syrian cities, a leading opposition party inside the country pinned its hopes on the new UN special envoy to bring in a solution to the prolonged, intractable crisis.

Syria's state media said Tuesday the army troops are "hardly hitting" the armed insurgent groups' in several areas of the northern Aleppo province, as activists reported shelling and clashes in a number of Syrian cities.

The state-run SANA news agency said the armed forces are hardly hitting the "mercenary terrorists" in a number of neighborhoods in the city of Aleppo "in a continued process to eliminate the armed terrorist groups in the province."

The government army clashed Tuesday with armed insurgents in Abbart Bolis and al-Haddadeh areas in Aleppo, said SANA, adding that scores of armed men were arrested or killed.
