Syria at war

A Syrian man grieves over the bodies of four members of his family, who were killed when an airstrike hit their house, as they lie on the side of the street outside a field hospital in Aleppo, Syria, Friday, Aug. 17, 2012. Rebel footholds in Aleppo have been the target of weeks of Syrian shelling and air attacks as part of wider offensives by President Bashar Assad's regime. Rebels have been driven from some areas, but the report of clashes near the airport suggests the battles could be shifting to new fronts.(AP Photo/ Khalil Hamra)

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)
