In this Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012 photo, a rebel fighter prepares to fire a homemade rocket towards a Syrian air force compound on the outskirts of Aleppo, Syria. Heavy clashes have taken place in the area after rebel groups launched a coordinated attack by hundreds of fighters to seize control over the Syrian army base in the north of the city. There is a struggle for power among rebel factions in Syria with Islamists rejecting the country's new Western-backed opposition coalition and unilaterally declaring an Islamic state in the key battleground of Aleppo, though all of the groups are fighting to topple President Bashar Assad.
