“Saudi weapons” seen at Syria rebel base

BBC News has uncovered evidence that weapons intended for the Saudi military have been diverted to Syrian rebels.

Three crates from an arms manufacturer – addressed to Saudi Arabia – have been seen in a base being used by rebel fighters in the city of Aleppo.

How the small crates reached Aleppo is unknown, and the BBC was not allowed to film their contents. Saudi Arabia has refused to comment on the matter.

Meanwhile, a big blast has been heard in a suburb of the capital, Damascus.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based activist group, said the attack was targeting a branch of the air force intelligence agency in Harasta.

There are no reports of casualties so far. Fighting is reported to be continuing in the area.

Turkey is calling for “international action” on Syria after a sixth consecutive day of cross-border shelling.

Turkey returned fire across the border on Monday after a Syrian shell fell on its territory.

Turkey would continue to do everything necessary to protect its borders, President Abdullah Gul said on Monday, adding that the “worst-case scenarios” were now taking place in Syria.

No-one was hurt in the latest incident, near the town of Altinozu, in Hatay province, the Turkish semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.
