US resumes nonlethal aid to Syrian opposition
The United States has restarted deliveries of nonlethal aid to the Syrian opposition, officials said Monday, more than a month after al-Qaeda-linked terrorists seized warehouses and prompted a sudden cutoff of Western supplies to the rebels.


The communications equipment and other items are being funneled for now only to non-armed opposition groups, said the US officials.


But the move nevertheless boosts Syria's beleaguered rebels, who saw their international support slide after Islamic militants seized bases near the Turkish border that had been under the authority of a key US-backed leader. (AP)
