Clashes has increased in Hama. Activists say dozens have been killed and many more have been wounded in the bloody attacks, a violation of the shaky ceasefire in the country.  

Abu Ghazi, a Syrian activist, spoke to Al Jazeera by telephone from Hama. He said that the situation was deteriorating.

Many of the victims are women and children. Peoople are dying because we don't have the necessary medical equipment or expertise  to save those injured.

"And the death toll is rising by the hour. This area is a very poor neighbourhood, surrounded by fields. Houses are built on top of each other and many of the houses host refugees from Homs. 

"I believe this area was targeted because of the daily rallies that took place here.

"As for the UN monitors, we don't really count on them, they are laughable."
