Tribes Play Major Role In Assad Revolt
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- Sunni tribes have played a major role in the revolt
against Syrian President Bashar Assad, a report said.
The Jamestown Foundation asserted that elements of tribes throughout
Syria have been fighting the Assad regime since March 2011. In a report, the
Washington-based foundation said tribal members were paid to desert the
Syrian military and join rebel forces that included the Free Syrian Army.
