Syrian rebels claim making gains in Hama

Opposition fighters advance on government-held positions after receiving artillery weapons and rockets.

    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.
