US arms reach Syrian rebels

Recent shipment of US made anti-tank weapons sent to a moderate fighting force could signal a shift in policy.

    The armed opposition inside Syria remains divided.

    The West has been hesitant to provide advanced weapons because of the growing influence of radical groups.

    But a recent shipment of US-made anti-tank weapons to a moderate fighting force could signal a shift in policy.

    The Islamic Front has told Al Jazeera it believes the shipment is part of US efforts to create a new loyal force.
