Intervention ‘changing equation’ of Syria war
Outside powers need to act fast to protect Syrians because foreign military backing for the government is “changing the equation” of the war, Qatar’s foreign minister said yesterday. For 14 days, a Russian-backed Syrian government offensive has been underway to capture eastern Aleppo and crush the last urban stronghold of a revolt against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that began in 2011. Qatar’s Foreign Minister, HE Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, told a news conference in Singapore yesterday that the Friends of Syria group had since February “stopped and minimised” its supply of weapons to rebels. “On the other hand, the regime is continuing to receive supply from its allies, and that is what is changing the equation right now, and we hope that we can do something to protect them,” he said in answer to a question.
