Syrian opposition fighters appear to be developing their own hand-made weapons and rockets in their battle against government forces, latest pictures released by Reuters have shown.

The pictures show men from the Soqour al-Sham Brigade setting up weapons factories inside caves.

The fighters seem to be developing mortar shells from gas canisters and building rockets from makeshift materials.

The Islamist group Soqour al-Sham, or the Falcons of Syria, were established in 2011 and are believed to be a mix of civilian volunteers and former military members.
