AP sources: CIA delivering light weapons to Syria

Published: 09.12.13, 15:34 / Israel News

The CIA has been delivering light machine guns and other small arms to Syrian rebels for several weeks, following President Barack Obama's decision to arm the rebels.

 

The intelligence agency has also arranged for the Syrian opposition to receive anti-tank weaponry like rocket-propelled grenades through a third party, presumably one of the Gulf countries that has been arming the rebels, a senior US intelligence official and two former intelligence officials said Thursday. They spoke on condition of anonymity. The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal first reported the aid. (AP)
