Gulf Opens Arms Line To Syrian Rebels
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Gulf Cooperation Council states have opened a weapons
line to Sunni rebels in Syria.
Opposition sources said at least two GCC states were investing tens of
millions of dollars per month to equip the rebels with weapons, munitions
and basic supplies. They said the arms were flowing through such countries
as Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey and for the first time enabled the
rebels to accumulate stockpiles around the Damascus area.
