Syrian opposition leader will seek "every way" to arm FSA

Syrian opposition chief George Sabra said Friday that his coalition would try in “every way” to supply the Free Syrian Army with weapons, and denounced the international community for failing to arm the rebels, according to Turkey's Anadolu Agency.
The Syrian National Council president added that the US was 'misguiding' the Syrian people by designating jihadi rebel group, al-Nusra Front, a terrorist organization.
The group is believed to be behind a number of crushing bomb attacks against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government, including one that recently wounded Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim al-Shaar. They have also targeted civilian areas.
Nusra Front leaders have been quoted in various media outlets as saying they intend to implement hardline interpretations of Islamic Sharia in a post-Assad Syria.
The biggest terrorist in Syria was in fact Bashar al-Assad and his government, said Sabra.
