In this picture taken on Thursday November 1, 2012 citizen journalism image, provided by Edlib News Network, ENN, which has been authenticated based on its contents and other AP reporting, Syrians inspect a mosque which was destroyed in shelling by Syrian forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad, in the village of Taftanaz, Idlib province, northern Syria. Syrian rebels killed more than 75 soldiers on Thursday, about half of them in attacks on military checkpoints in the north just hours after a wave of bombings hit the Damascus area, activists said. The unusually high toll for regime forces came after days of intense air bombardment of rebel positions around the country that killed hundreds. (AP Photo/Idlib News Network ENN)
