Syria FSA leaders condemn foreign involvement

Foreign forces involvement blamed for split in the opposition and for gains made by the government.

    Syria's rebel leaders have criticised foreign involvement in the war and blamed outside interference for the splits within the opposition to President Bashar al-Assad.

    One of the founders of the Free Syrian Army, Riad al-Assad, said that the countries involved in the war in Syria had their own agenda, which was endagering the revolution.

    Colonel Abdel Jabar al-Okaidi, the former head of Aleppo's opposition military council said infighting caused by foreign money had split the rebels.
