Syrian rebels are being armed by outside forces, according to reports and officials from Russia, Iran and Egypt. Iran’s deputy foreign minister accused the U.S. government and Arab countries of arming the rebels a few days after talks with Russian officials. Egypt has also warned against an upcoming civil war if the flow of weapons from outside forces continues, echoing previous statements by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
