Renewed fighting between Syrian troops and the opposition took place in Deraa Monday (August 20th) as the regime's nationwide offensive continued into the second day of Eid, AFP reported.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 52 people died across Syria on Monday.
In Aleppo, troops backed by helicopters attacked several areas still under the opposition's control, including the Salaheddine neighbourhood where much of the regime's military offensive has been focused since July 20th.
The Observatory also reported clashes near the city's military tribunal and the local Baath party headquarters.
Syrian forces also dispatched combat helicopters, tanks and heavy artillery in Herak, northeast of Deraa, the opposition Syrian National Council said.
The recent violence follows reports that 56 people were killed on Sunday, the first day of Eid in Syria.
Among the casualties were six children, including four from the same extended family, who were killed by shelling near the town of Maaret al-Numan in Idlib province.
On Sunday, President Bashar Assad made a rare public appearance for Eid prayers.
