US and UK withdrawing from Syria war


The Islamic Front invaded a zone controlled by the Free Syrian Army, capturing its arsenal. General Selim Idriss fled to Turkey, and later took refuge in Qatar.

The United States and the United Kingdom immediately announced the interruption of their arms deliveries (essentially communication systems and vehicles), to the Free Syrian Army in total disarray.

The Islamic Front is backed by Israel, France and Saudi Arabia.
