Rice: US provides moderate Syrian rebels with 'lethal and non-lethal' aid

The United States was providing moderate Syrian rebels with "lethal and non-lethal" aid, National Security Adviser Susan Rice told CNN on Friday.

 

“The United States has been the single largest contributor of humanitarian assistance, providing over 1.7 billion dollars,” she said. “That's why the United States has ramped up its support for the moderate vetted opposition, providing lethal and nonlethal support where we can to support both the civilian opposition and the military opposition.” (Ynetnews)
