As diplomats in Geneva wrestled with how to bring government and opposition delegations together for face-to-face talks, Friday's nationwide anti-regime demonstrations in Syria were held under the slogan "11,000 war crimes".Idlib province is famous for the town of Kafranbel, the epicenter of civilian protests and anti-regime sloganeering, but people in several other areas in the province turned out for the weekly protests.One young protester held a sign saluting the "free journalist" Haifa Bouzo, who was involved in a brief altercation with supporters of the regime earlier this week in the Swiss city of Montreux, where the opening Geneva II session was held.One day after Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri urged rebels and jihadists to end several weeks of clashes that are believed to have killed at least 1,500 people, the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) showed no signs of easing its hard-line rule.The Observatory said that after several days of clashes, ISIS militants seized control of the town of Darkoush in Idlib province, one day after cementing their control over the rural Aleppo town of Manbij.
