June 27 - Footage posted to a social media website purports to show Syrian rebels after a pro-Assad armoured vehicle was set ablaze, with its crew still on board. Deborah Lutterbeck reports.
Amateur video out of Syria appears to show a government military vehicle in flames in Idlib, Tuesday. The video, which could not be independently verified by Reuters, comes amid reports that rebels launched an assault on the vehicle with the crew still aboard. On Wednesday in Washington the White House condemned all acts of violence in Syria. Meanwhile, attacks by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad continue. Footage, purportedly shot Wednesday, shows the ongoing assault on Homs. In a speech Tuesday night, Assad said the country was now "at war." He said all sectors of the government and country must devote their energies to the war effort. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
