Syrian Gov Shells Rebel Areas          10/24 06:42

   Activists say that Syrian government forces have stepped up shelling of 
rebel-held areas, killing nine people in a village in the country's north.


   BEIRUT (AP) -- Activists say that Syrian government forces have stepped up 
shelling of rebel-held areas, killing nine people in a village in the country's 
north.

   Local activist Ibrahim Khatib and Rami Abdurrahman of the Britain-based 
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday that government forces 
targeted the village of Tel Qrah the previous night.

   They say the bombing is part of an intensified effort by the Syrian 
government forces to retake rebel-held areas around the country's key cities 
and towns while the U.S.-led coalition is focusing on fighting the Islamic 
State group.

   Abdurrahman says the bombing killed nine, including three children.

   Khatib says a hall where displaced Syrians were living was hit and that many 
bodies were badly burnt and could not be identified.
