REUTERS IS UNABLE TO INDEPENDENTLY VERIFY THE CONTENT OF THIS VIDEO, WHICH HAS BEEN OBTAINED FROM A SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITE. Video uploaded to the internet appears to show rebels attacking government forces in separate locations across Syria. Footage that has reportedly been shot in Aleppo on Thursday shows a tank exploding. In another attack allegedly in the same area rebels appear to shell a government building. While in another video what is believed to be a rebel fighter fires a machine gun at an airborne jet near Deraa. Reuters cannot independently verify the footage of these attacks, which was obtained from a social media website. But more than 100,000 people have been killed in the two and a half year civil war. International efforts to resolve the conflict and eliminate Syria's chemical weapons continue.
