“Twenty-three other people have not been identified because their bodies were too badly burnt,” it said.

Anti-regime protesters in rebel-held areas denounced the international community’s reluctance to arm rebel forces, in videos posted on YouTube.

“You can keep your non-lethal arms. We will make weapons with our own hands. Either we die, or we win,” read a banner carried by demonstrators in Habit, a town in rebel Idlib Province.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said violence across the country killed at least 95 people on Friday, including 41 civilians, 29 rebels and 16 soldiers.

In other developments, Syrian troops retook on Friday the Yaarubiyeh crossing on the Iraqi border in oil-rich Hassakeh province, captured a day earlier by jihadist fighters, the Observatory said.
