Rebels in the Syrian city of Hama have claimed that they are gradually making gains against the Syrian army.

Opposition fighters said they have been able to advance on government-held positions after receiving artillery weapons and rockets.

The use of artillery has allowed them to attack President Bashar al-Assad's forces from a distance, weaken government held positions and pave the way for their fighters to capture more territory.
