Syrian Rebels Lack Ammo
NICOSIA [MENL] -- Sunni rebels, restricted by Arab sponsors, have run low on
ammunition amid the offensive by the regime of Syrian President Bashar
Rebel sources said their leading supporters -- Qatar and Saudi Arabia --
withheld supplies of ammunition and other military equipment in 2013. They
said the two Gulf Cooperation Council states began to reduce aid to the
rebels in late November 2012 amid U.S. pressure to stop helping militias
aligned with Al Qaida.
