Syrian opposition asks for help in 2-front fight

Published: 06.27.14, 17:27 / Israel News

JEDDAH - The head of the Syrian moderate opposition asked for more foreign aid on Friday as his rebels tried to back a bloody insurgency even as they continued their so-far unsuccessful effort to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad.


Syrian opposition leader Ahmad al-Jarba's plea comes as the White House seeks to send $500 million to the increasingly beleaguered moderate Sunni rebels who are facing two fronts in the protracted civil war.


Jarba told US Secretary of State John Kerry that the insurgents' march across the porous border between Syria and Iraq has created confusion across the region, and he said the war against terrorism must be stronger than ever. (AP)
