WASHINGTON,(SANA)- McClatchy Newspaper, run by the US army, stressed that Israel coordinates with the USA in the domain of supplying the armed opposition in Syria with weapons.

An Israeli military spokesman told the newspaper that “Israel will not interfere in stopping weapons’ shipments to the armed groups in this stage, yet it is completely informed about all the inflows and outflows of weapons in Syria.”

The newspaper quoted an American intelligence source as saying “There are anonymous sides also that support those armed groups, and we don’t know the type of weapons they have…Israel must be cautious.”
