{{newsitem|[[Syria]]n Warplanes Bomb Olive Oil Factory|27 Nov 2012| Syrian warplanes bombed an olive oil factory packed with farmers, killing at least 20 people in the latest regime strike to rip through a crowd of civilians. The bombing comes as the civil war takes a devastating toll on an already beleaguered population. The conflict in Syria started 20 months ago as an uprising against Assad, whose family has ruled Syria for four decades. The conflict quickly morphed into a civil war, with rebels taking up arms to fight back against a bloody crackdown by the government. According to activists, some 40,000 people have been killed since March 2011.
