US continues support of Syrian moderates
Hagel says the seizure is a big problem and the US, along with moderate opposition leaders, is going to have to work through it.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says the US will continue to support the moderate opposition in Syria, but non-lethal aid will be suspended until the US can get a clear assessment on the status of warehouses of military equipment seized by extremist Islamic militants.
Hagel says the seizure is a big problem and the US, along with moderate opposition leaders, is going to have to work through it. He says it reflects the unpredictable situation there where it’s not “an easy choice between the good guys and the bad guys.”
Opposition fighters from conservative Islamic rebel brigades seized warehouses containing US military gear that was intended for the main Western-backed moderate rebel group.
Hagel says the ongoing effort to remove and destroy Syria’s cache of chemical weapons is on track.
