Syrian Groups Furious Over Israeli Food Aid

Arab paper says the food is provided to Syrians who approach the Israeli border in search of medical assistance

The various different groups fighting in Syria’s bloody civil war were all pointing accusatory fingers at one another last week over photo evidence of Israeli food aid reaching some of the rebel factions.

Bags of Israeli rice and flour were shown near road signs in the Qunietra region on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.

The pictures sparked a war of words on social media.

“It is a disgrace to be receiving food from the Zionist Entity which has stolen the Golan,” wrote one jihadist group.

Pages linked to the Syrian regime insisted the photos were evidence that rebel groups are cooperating with the hated Israeli enemy.

According to the pan-Arab newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi, the food is provided to some of the more moderate rebel groups that make up the Free Syrian Army, which regularly brings its wounded and other victims to the Golan border to receive medical aid from the Israelis.
