Gulf states supporting Syria rebels in the civil war against Syrian President Bassar al-Assad have sent them 400 tons of arms, opposition sources told Reuters Sunday.
Most of the shipments contained ammunition for anti-=-aircraft machine guns and shoulder-fired weapons. The ammunition and arms cross into northern Syria form Turkey.
The movement of weapons for rebels reportedly has increased sharply since last week’s reports of the large-scale use of chemical weapons in Syria, where both Assad and rebels accuse each other of using chemical warfare.Jewish Press News Briefs
