Damascus: A total of 95 people, including 23 Hezbollah members, have been killed in an intense fighting in Syria`s Al-Qussair city since Saturday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Monday.

The toll comprises four civilians, 56 rebel fighters, 12 government troops and 23 fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah militant group, Xinhua reported.

The Army pushed its way into al-Qussair city early Sunday after taking control over its countryside in a 46-day campaign.
Activists claim that the Lebanese Hezbollah group is fighting alongside the government troops in al-Qussair as the group is believed to be an important ally of the Syrian administration.
