Saudi Struggles In Arms To Syria
LONDON [MENL] -- Saudi Arabia has been struggling in supplying weapons to
the Sunni revolt in Syria, a report said.
The International Crisis Group reported that Saudi Arabia, deemed the
leading ally of the Sunni rebels, was finding it difficult to maintain the
flow of effective weapons in the war against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
In a report, ICG said Saudi Arabia, which took over sponsorship of the
revolt from Qatar in June 2013, has been hampered by inadequate supply
routes, tension with Turkey and U.S. restrictions on the transfer of
American weapons sold to the Gulf Cooperation Council kingdom.
