Syrian opposition: Weapons needed to battle Assad

Published: 05.07.14, 21:02 / Israel News

WASHINGTON - A key Syrian opposition leader said the forces fighting against President Bashar Assad need weapons that could "neutralize" government air raids and change the balance of power on the ground, which he says would pave the way for a political solution to the crisis.

 

Ahmad al-Jarba spoke Wednesday in Washington on the day rebel forces surrendered the key stronghold of Homs. He said the war is not about gaining or losing a city, but about the whole conflict, which has lasted more than three years. Rebels have been asking the US for lethal aid for some time, but the Obama administration has refused.

 

Al-Jarba said even if the opposition completely controlled Homs, no one would be secure because of Assad's air raids. (AP)
