Violence in Syria cost at least 10 lives yesterday as a UN force to oversee a truce neared half its planned strength.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, in Idlib province, a stronghold near the Turkish border of rebels fighting President Bahar al-Assad's regime, security force gunfire killed a man and a woman during a series of raids.

Another civilian and a child were killed in pre-dawn shelling in central Hama province, the Britain-based watchdog said, while a fifth was killed by sniper fire in the north-eastern city of Deir Ezzor.

Meanwhile, four soldiers and an army deserter were killed in clashes between rebel groups and regime forces in Idlib province.

According to the Observatory, the total death toll has climbed to more than 930, over two-thirds of them civilians, since the battered ceasefire.
