The Local Coordination Committees of Syria, an opposition group, said the toll includes a "massacre" of 35 people in the village of Al Fan in Hama province.
Separately, a bombing near a government security building in the capital Damascus left at least four people wounded, state television said, calling the incident "terrorism."
The state news agency SANA said there had been a clash between government forces and an "armed terrorist group" in the area.
