France warns it's too early to arm Syrian rebels

Published: 03.30.13, 00:02 / Israel News

France's president is backing off a push to arm Syrian rebels amid turmoil within Syria's opposition and concerns the weapons could fall into extremist hands. France has been pressuring European Union partners to lift an arms embargo against Syria to be able to provide the rebels with firepower against President Bashar Assad's military.


But French President Francois Hollande said Thursday night the country won't deliver weapons until there is "certainty that these arms will be used by legitimate opposition members, and cut off from all terrorist influence." He continued, "for now, we don't have that." (AP)
