The rebels say they’ve made progress but many say they are angry that they haven’t received more support. SOUNDBITE: Unnamed rebel fighter saying: “We will win over that dog Assad. But I want to deliver a message to the Arabs, the Arabs who betrayed us. The Arabs who said at first they will support the opposition party and the free army but in the end they retreated.” From their position amid the rubble, the rebel fighters are turning to an ancient method to attack their enemies, they’re using this slingshot to hurl grenades in the direction of government forces.
