Syrian rebels say they have received weapons from Arab countries that could change the balance of power on the ground, Al Arabiya TV reported Thursday.
The weapons are enabling the Free Syrian Army to launch counterattacks against regime forces, Al Arabiya TV added.
The new supplies have played an “important” role in consolidating the rebel presence in the northern province of Aleppo, the southern province of Deraa, and the western province of Homs, opposition sources said.
Meanwhile, Salim Idriss, head of FSA’s military command, said that the new weapons have allowed the rebel army to “destroy more than 90 armored vehicles for Syrian regime.”
