CIA snaps Syria rebel aid

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - World -

THE Cen­tral In­tel­li­gence Agency is shut­ting down its pro­gram to sup­port rebels fight­ing against Syr­ian Pres­i­dent Bashar al-as­sad, the Wash­ing­ton Post re­ported Wed­nes­day.

Cit­ing un­named US of­fi­cials, it said the four-year-old covert op­er­a­tion has had lim­ited im­pact, es­pe­cially since Rus­sian forces stepped in to sup­port As­sad in 2015. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump made the de­ci­sion to drop the pro­gram nearly a month ago.
