Rebels: $60 Billion Needed to Rebuild Syria

And counting, presumably, as the violence continues


The Syrian opposition will need $60 billion in aid to prevent the country's collapse within six months of a fall of the regime, prominent leader George Sabra told reporters on Wednesday.

Over the "first six months we need 60 billion dollars" as immediate aid and for reconstruction, Sabra told reporters in Dubai on the sidelines of a "Partnership to Invest in Future Syria" meeting.
