In this Friday Aug. 17, 2012 file photo, Syrian fighters search for survivors under the rubble of a building destroyed in an airstrike by Syrian government planes in Aleppo, Syria. As Syria's rebels gain ground across the country, the fighters are trying to win the hearts and minds of their countrymen and the international community -- capturing army diesel trucks to give to impoverished villagers, working to restore damaged power lines and smuggling in foreign journalists.

Syrian rebels said on June 21 they have received new weapons from friendly countries that could lead to changes on the ground and victories against President Bashar Assad's forces. The civil war has killed tens of thousands of people, displaced more than four million and turned neighbor against neighbor, with civilians paying the price. (Reuters)
