US President Barack Obama has approved non-lethal US aid, including communications equipment and medicines for Syria’s rebels, and plans to increase the package over time, a US official said Friday.

The administration had previously indicated it would take such a step, in line with an initiative by the international “Friends of Syria” group to bolster opponents of President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

“Consistent with our longstanding efforts to support the peaceful opposition in Syria, the US is providing non-lethal material assistance to the non-violent, political opposition,” the official said.

“It’s likely deliveries of this assistance will increase over time.”
