(CBS News) Syrian rebel commander Jamal Maarouf is credited with being the first to shoot down a government fighter jet -- a rare victory against the powerful Syrian air force.
Maarouf leads the Syrian Martyrs Brigade, a rebel group which is looking for help anywhere it can find it. He told us he's received guns and ammunition from outside Syria, but he's had to capture heavy weapons, like a tank, from the Syrian army.
He took us to the city of Maarat Nouman in northern Syria to show us what the government forces are doing.
"This is a civilian area," he told us. "They hit this area randomly, even though there are no fighters here."

Maarouf and his men told us that they were able to push regime forces out of the city in just 24 hours, but now the real battle begins. The few residents who still live here told us that two-thirds of the city is rubble.
Suddenly, we heard a government fighter jet wheel overhead, followed by the sound of anti-aircraft fire. Nervous residents scanned the skies to see where the plane would drop its bombs.
A short time later, we saw for ourselves: six bombs had landed on the tiny village where we were staying. Neighbors frantically tried to dig out the body of a woman, as her daughter cursed
