Syrian Rebels Appeal to Donors Through Video

Friday, July 27, 2012

Added to the mix is a new type of video made by rebels, aimed at getting funding from donors abroad. Brooke speaks to NPR Middle East correspondent Deb Amos about making videos in order to get weapons.

Thank you so much for helping me to understand the nature of support for the well armed and well entrenched Syrian opposition. Nobody is covering this angle *at all* as far as I can see.
