On Saturday, Syrian tanks stormed the mostly Sunni city of Banias, a rights campaigner said, raising sectarian tensions in a country swept by protests against the rule of President Bashar Assad, an Allawite.
At least six civilians were killed in the attack, including four women, human rights campaigners said.
