Soviet made BMP personnel carriers, captured from the Syrian government army by rebel fighters, are garaged out of sight of fighter jets that patrol the skies over Maaret Al-Numan, on November 17, 2012. After months of repeated airstrikes and artillery barrages by Syrian forces outside Maaret Al-Numan, fighting for this crucial town on the Aleppo-Damascus highway shows little sign of abating. The Free Syrian Army control the town, but the Syrian army are free to bombard it at will. AFP PHOTO/JOHN CANTLIE (Photo credit should read John Cantlie/AFP/Getty Images)
