US suspends non-lethal assistance into northern Syria

The United States has suspended all non-lethal assistance into northern Syria after Islamic Front forces seized headquarters and warehouses belonging to the opposition's Supreme Military Council, a US Embassy spokesman in Ankara said.

 

Fighters from the Islamic Front, a union of six major rebel groups, took control of the Free Syrian Army bases at the Bab al-Hawa crossing on Syria's northwestern border with Turkey late on Friday.
