Syrian opposition forces new cease fire-ending offensive will last at least several weeks, the latest sign the U.N.-brokered plan is dead, a rebel source says.
In battles over the weekend, rebel militants allegedly killed around 80 Syrian soldiers weekend. The opposition forces opted to launch the series of attacks because President Bashir al-Assad has for weeks ignored a U.N. cease fire mandate, they claim.
"Over the next weeks, it's only going to get bloodier," says the opposition source.
