The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved sending more cease-fire observers to the battered nation of Syria. The government and resistance agreed to end the struggle last week, but hostilities have continued, claiming more lives.

Assad has killed 13,705 civilians, including 933 children. 65,000+ missing. 212,000+ detained. Syria bleeds, world watches. #Syria (SRCC)
