Syria at war

Associated Press
This image made from amateur video released by the R.Y.E. Syria and accessed Monday Aug. 13, 2012, purports to show a Syrian plane downed over the eastern province of Deir el-Zour, Syria, Monday Aug. 13, 2012. Activists released a video which they claim shows a government Soviet-made MiG warplane catching fire apparently after it was hit by ground fire while Syrian state-run media said Monday a pilot ejected from a warplane on a training mission after a technical failure.

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)
