US, Turkey Agree on ‘Non-Lethal’ Aid to Syrian Rebels

•, by Jason Ditz
The agreement won’t actually have them providing any aid right away, but instead will have them pressing for agreement on the policy at the “Friends of Syria” meeting on intervention, to be held in Turkey next weekend.

US deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes says that the agreement will only cover the provision of “non-lethal” aid, including medical supplies and communications equipment to help the rebels better coordinate their attacks. Rhodes says President Obama remains “uncertain” about the rebels and not comfortable with supplying them weapons.
