Syrian security forces are faced with armed men

Syrian security forces confronted on Monday with hundreds of gunmen in the northwestern city of Jisr al-Shughour, where at least 40 people were killed, said on state television. "They managed to end a blockade on one of the neighborhoods captured by armed men and have been fighting them to stop blockages in other sectors (city)," the report said Syrian public channel.

It is the first time that staff report on large-scale confrontations in the 11-week revolt against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
