Syria with anti-aircrafts missiles during the US President Barrack Obama’s visit to the
Saudi Arabia, and Kerry stressed the US rejection of that.”

receive funds and they are waiting for big shipments of weapons, particularly
anti-aircrafts missiles, a sort of weapons the armed groups in the north desire.

to the crisis in Syria is best.
