Top Syrian Rebel Commander Denies He Fled, Says He's Working to Stop Fighting Among Rebels in North

US, UK aid suspended


A top Syrian rebel commander denies that he abandoned his post and says he is working to resolve fighting among opposition groups in the country's north, he told CNN on Thursday.

In the meantime, a decision by the United States and Britain to halt nonlethal aid makes sense, said Salim Idriss, chief of staff of the Free Syrian Army.
