Rebels battling the Syrian Army and its allies south of Aleppo say they have received new supplies of US-made anti-tank missiles since a major government offensive began there on Friday, Reuters reported. The supplies came from states that oppose President Bashar Assad, according to rebels from three Free Syrian Army-affiliated groups. The weapons had been reportedly delivered since the start of the attack by the army backed by Iranian fighters and Lebanon’s Hezbollah. 

Representatives of one of the groups said the supplies “were not enough for the scale of the assault.” A number of rebel groups have been supplied with weapons via Turkey, part of a program supported by the US and which has in some cases included military training by the Central Intelligence Agency.
