US Senators OK Experimental Arming of Syrian Rebels


Members of the Intelligence Committee in the United States Senate agreed, Monday, to arm opponents of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad on an experimental basis. Under decision, the rebels will get ammunition next month.

Until now, the U.S. has prevented the transfer of weapons to Syria, out of concern that it will fall into the hands of terrorists linked with the Al-Qaeda network.
