US to arm Syrian rebels after chemical weapons claim

The United States will begin providing arms to the Syrian rebellion after the U.S. says the current regime used chemical weapons.

President Barack Obama said recently the U.S. has new proof that Syrian President Bassar al-Assad used chemical weapons against rebel forces, a tactic Obama had previously called a "red line" for forcing greater U.S. involvement.

As a result of the use, the U.S. will now send communications equipment and light arms to the Free Syrian Army, which had supposedly been attempting to acquire chemical weapons, according to previous reports.
