The bodies of seven children have been exhumed in the Syrian northern town of Harem, the state TV said Sunday, adding that the kids were killed after the armed groups fired shells at the area. Xinhua reported.
Many bodies are still under the rubble in Harem, which has seen intense fighting between the government troops and armed rebels trying to take a foothold in northern Syria, according to the report.
The Syrian army has reportedly started an operation in the north to regain control over rebel-held areas.
Violence has become rampant in several parts of Syria, giving no sign of backing down amid high frustration among the people who grew more tensed with the daily grind of chaos.
