UK offers new funding to Syria's rebels

Britain's government said it is offering $7.8 million to Syria's rebel forces to pay for communications equipment and medical supplies.

 

In an op-ed article for the Times of London published Friday, Foreign Secretary William Hague said the UK would intensify contacts with the political wing of the Free Syrian Army, to "prepare for the inevitable day of (President Bashar) Assad's fall." (Reuters)
