The FSA (Free Syria Army) has been supplied with a large quantity of Red Arrow or HJ-10, Chinese made anti tank/helicopter missiles as well as sniper rifles with the permission of the USA. They have been supplied through channels that use various crime syndicates in the region of Russia but not Russia itself. These have been supplied because there will be a strike on targets of the Assad regime and as my source told me, it is to boost moral of the Syrian revolutionaries and to defend border regions of the countries that surround Syria. I had this conversation this evening with a very good Syrian friend of mine. He also told me that they are only supplied enough to defend themselves but not enough to attack.
