The United States is ramping up its support for Syria’s opposition with a pledge of nearly $100 million in fresh aid.

Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced the additional assistance Saturday at the Manama Dialogue security conference in the Gulf island nation of Bahrain.

The U.S. says the new funds bring to nearly $500 million the amount it has pledged to the opposition since 2012, and will support local and provincial councils, civil society activists, emergency services and other needs on the ground inside Syria.

  1. Wow a WHOLE 100 million. From an economy in the trillions. In relative terms, that’s like someone who earns 100,000 thousand dollars a year contributing $10.

        Nagy if it’s your tax money then you are also responsible for giving Israel BILLIONS per year. So now that you claim ownership of that money I can call you a supporter of even more terrorists. Be happy and lucky I don’t abuse you
