The Syrian National Council (SNC), an opposition group that has been acting as an interlocuter for foreign governments, has called for an emergency UN Security Council meeting.
It has also accused the government killing more than 100 people in Hama in recent days.
"We are calling for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council so that it can issue a resolution to protect civilians in Syria," the SNC said in a statement.
"Hama in recent days, and following a visit by UN observers, witnessed a series of crimes... that left more than 100 people dead and hundreds wounded because of heavy shelling.
"The city also witnessed summary executions, raids, arrests and the flight of residents," the exile group added.
