In the mountainous region of Jabal al-Turkman, eight rebels and four soldiers were killed after insurgents attacked an army convoy en route to Kasab.

The Observatory, which relies on a network of activists and medics, said at least 96 people were killed nationwide on Monday — 45 rebels, 26 civilians and 25 soldiers.

It puts the death toll in more than 20 months of conflict at more than 39,000.
