GCC Forms Fund For Syrian Rebels
ANKARA [MENL] -- The Gulf Cooperation Council intends to form a war chest
for the Sunni revolt in Syria.
GCC states have agreed to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to arm,
train and pay Sunni fighters sworn to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Diplomats said the GCC effort would be led by Qatar and Saudi Arabia and
also reward those who desert Assad's military and security forces.
