Russia Today – Feel free to report: ‘Sending arms to Syrian rebels is now legal and covered by the Arab League’
The Arab states have been sending to the rebels as much military aid as they could for the past year, Syria Tribune editor-in-chief Ali Mohamad told RT, adding that he doesn’t see what else they could send to “topple the balance of power on the ground.”
RT: The Gulf States have been allegedly sending arms to Syria’s rebels for a long time now. Will this official resolution change anything?
Ali Mohamad: Not on the ground, no. They want it to be a media victory for the opposition but on the ground they’ve been sending weapons in large quantities – all they can send. And I don’t think they can send anymore. They will just keep sending what they are already sending but with media cover which shows what they’re doing is legal and covered by the Arab League.
