As the fighting in Syria continues, the rebel forces are continuing to record victories against the Syrian army. This past weekend the rebels reported that they were able to overtake a battalion of the Syrian armored corps north of Deraa, not far from the Israeli border.

The rebels reported that they had been able to seize five T-72 tanks, four T-55 tanks, three armored personnel carriers, four anti-aircraft guns 23 millimeters in diameter, two vehicles with a heavy machine gun and many guns.

Meanwhile, a video uploaded to YouTube by the rebels video shows that sometimes one simply needs some luck.

The video shows one of the rebel fighters walking, following a battle, to catch up to his fellow fighters, when suddenly a mortar shell explodes very close to him. Luckily for him, the fighter is only lightly wounded and is shown catching up with the other members of the force.
