At least 214 people — 124 civilians, 62 soldiers and 28 rebels died in one of the bloodiest days of a 16-month revolt against President Bashar Al Assad’s regime, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Thursday.

The figure did not include three members of Assad’s inner circle who died in a Wednesday bomb attack on security headquarters in the heart of the capital.
