Rebel forces head towards an ammunition depot north of Damascus. They identify their target....and unleash their weapons. Soon the fighting begins. They move in on their target. More footage which cannot be independently verified by Reuters shows nighttime footage of rebels gathering the spoils of the fight. Still largely outgunned by President Bashar al-Assad's forces, the rebels have sought arms to tip the balance of power in the two-year conflict that has killed at least 100,000. Footage purportedly from Homs shows rebels launching an attack. Homs is key territory in the battle for control of Syria. It provides a link between Damascus and Assad's coastal strongholds. Now even the ruins are in ruins in Syria - where an oasis that has withstood the test of time is now battered by civil war.
