British MPs urge Cameron to support Syrian rebels

Published: Updated:

Members of the British parliament urged Prime Minister David Cameron this week to consider arming the Syrian opposition and support a transitional period in Syria without President Bashar al-Assad.

Politicians from the parliament's three main parties urged in a letter published by the The Times newspaper, Cameron to “redress the military disadvantage” in the conflict.

Alistair Burt, a politician who oversaw Syria policy for three years, told Al Arabiya News Channel that it is time to back the main Syrian Opposition Council and the Free Syrian Army.
