FILE - This Sept. 1, 2016 file photo provided by the Syria Press Center (SPC), an anti-government media group, shows rescue workers using a bulldozer to remove a burned van after airstrikes that killed a dozen people west of the town of Suran in Hama province, Syria. Infighting among some insurgent groups in Syria is severely hampering an offensive that many activists had hoped would cut government supply lines to Aleppo and ease the pressure on that embattled northern city. A Syrian cabinet minister, Ali Haidar, told The Associated Press in Damascus on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016, that Hama was the “safety valve which the gunmen tried to open to alleviate pressure on Aleppo.” (Syria Press Center via AP, File)
