Defense minister for Syrian opposition resigns

Published: 05.19.14, 12:20 / Israel News

BEIRUT - The minister of defense for Syria's opposition government has resigned following disagreements with the body's head, opposition sources said on Monday, highlighting divisions among President Bashar Assad's opponents.


Saudi-backed dissident Asaad Mustafa was appointed to his post in November as part of a plan by the opposition National Coalition to administer rebel-held areas of the war-torn country.


But the government-in-exile has been unable to control disparate rebel groups, which include foreign al-Qaida insurgents, and has received only marginal support from its Western backers. (Reuters)
