Violence in Syria continued for the fourth straight day to chip away at what remains from a cease-fire that has effectively collapsed, leaving at least 28 people dead Monday in reciprocal shellings between government forces and opposition in the country's largest city while a bomb blast disrupted a relative quiet in a Damascus suburb that is home to one of the holiest Shiite shrines here.In the past week, nearly 150 people have been killed in northern Syria and near Damascus, marking a major escalation that has seen a fragile truce take a downward spiral to levels of violence unseen since the Feb.27 cease-fire, engineered by the U.S. and Russia, took hold.A previous bombing in the Sayyida Zeinab suburb, claimed by ISIS, killed some 130 people in February.Meanwhile, violence raged for the fourth straight day in Syria's largest city, the deeply contested Aleppo. The government news agency said rebel shelling of government-held neighborhoods left 16 people dead. Also, government shelling of rebel-held areas in the city left at least 3 killed, including a 6-year old girl.
