In addition, Steve Warren, a spokesman for the US Central Command in the Middle East and North Africa (CENTCOM), said the United States would continue to supply weapons and ammunition to the Syrian Arab opposition, but not to the Kurds, as the Turkish authorities fear.
“At the moment we do not supply the people's self-defense (Kurdish) detachments with arms and ammunition. The weapons and ammunition we dropped (previously in Syria) were intended for the Syrian Arab forces. As of now, future supplies will also be targeted to Arabs - trusted members of the Syrian opposition, ”he said.
At the same time, Warren stressed that the decision on what kind of weapon will fall into Syria has not yet been made.
