A rebel fighter fires a rocket propelled grenade - allegedly at a Syrian army tank in Aleppo.

Reuters cannot independently verify the content of this video which was uploaded to a social media website.

But it appears to show more heavy fighting in the city as the government's aerial bombardment continues.

More amateur video purportedly shows the aftermath of an attack by Syrian government forces on the village of Hazzano in Idlib.

The heavy shelling has forced many residents to move into tents on outer lying farms, as the increasingly bloody civil war continues.

On Thursday, Syria's Deputy Foreign Minister, Faisal Miqdad, acused Turkey of arming and hosting the rebels.

"Armed groups, terrorist groups, support by regional circles including the dangerous support by Turkey of the terrorist gangs"

He added that Syria was prepared to work with new UN international envoy Lakhdar Brahimi to find a solution to the crisis.
