"Saudis Step Up Help for Rebels in Syria With Croatian Arms
Saudi Arabia has financed a large purchase of infantry weapons from Croatia and quietly funneled them to antigovernment fighters in Syria in a drive to break the bloody stalemate that has allowed President Bashar al-Assad to cling to power, according to American and Western officials familiar with the purchases."
"The official added that Iran, with its shipments to Syria’s government, still outstrips what Arab states have sent to the rebels."
