The United States of America on 14 June 2013 announced to supply military aid directly to the Syrian rebels. The decision was made by the President Barack Obama, after his administration concluded that the Syrian forces under Bashar al-Ashad were using Chemical Weapons. For the first time, US have made such an announcement.

The US intelligence has suggested that about 150 people have been killed by due to the small number of chemical attacks in Syria.  The decision to give direct military support to the Syrian rebels came up after President Obama’s discussions with the European leaders over the Syrian conflict.

The decision to arm the Syrian rebels by US Government has been opposed by the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. On the other hand, Syria has claimed the US claim as fabricated information over chemical weapons for justifying its aid to the rebels of Syria.
