Arab League Authorizes Weapons to Syrian Rebels

On Wednesday, the Arab League officially offered Syria’s seat to the Syrian National Coalition, which represents the rebel forces.

They will have until the League’s next meeting, March 26-27, to select someone to fill the seat.

Algeria, Lebanon, and Iraq all refused to acknowledge them as official.

The League also authorized members to send weapons to the Syrian rebels.

As a body the League will not be sending anything beyond medical aid and food supplies, but now individual countries officially can send weapons.
