Reuters reported the fighting between forces allied with President Bashar al-Assad and opposition rebels has killed well over 32,000 people since the conflict began.

In the northern Syrian town of Atareb, Reuters said daily air raids have devastated about half of all buildings.

"My son believes he's doing the right thing. I love him so I accept that," an unnamed woman, whose son is fighting with pro-Assad forces, told Reuters.

"Everyone in the town thinks my son is working abroad, and I keep it that way. In a situation like this, people feel it's 'with us or against us'. I personally am with no one, I am against the whole thing. It's killing our children."
