Aid pledge to opposition angers Syria

Concerns that funds ear-marked by Gulf states for salaries will be used to buy weapons and expand conflict area.

    Several Gulf states have angered Damascus and its allies by pledging millions of dollars in support for rebel fighters.

    The money has been ear-marked to pay for their salaries, but there are fears it will be used to buy more weapons and widen the conflict even further.
