Fresh splits within Syria rebel ranks

Brigades in Deir Ezzor break away from Free Syrian Army, complaining of bad leadership and lack of weapons.

    Syrian rebels have stepped up their offensives in major cities across Syria, including the capital Damascus and Aleppo.

    With the increase in fighting, there have also been more divisions within the Free Syrian Army, the country's largest armed opposition movement, over a lack of support to specific armed groups.
