Activists say Syrian forces have clashed with army defectors using machine guns and heavy weaponry.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 10 Syrian soldiers were killed in the clashes that took place late Friday in Deir el-Zour. The group said on Saturday there were also several casualties among the group of armed dissidents known as the Free Syrian Army.
