The commander of the Free Syrian Army has urged the international community to provide weapons and ammunition to help his fighters in their battle against President Bashar al-Assad.
Gen Selim Idriss also called for the lifting of the EU arms embargo against Syria, saying it was having a much more negative effect on the opposition than on the Assad regime.
His comments came in a rare interview with the BBC's Chris Morris, in which he also made a plea for more humanitarian aid to help the millions of civilians caught up in the ongoing conflict in his country.
The rebel leader, who is in Brussels to address the European Parliament, said he was confident that the FSA could win the war - but warned the bloodshed could continue for years.
His BBC interview here, the reason of the ground radicalization because of lack of support from international community, if aid available for FSA with weapon and food for them then there is no problems these who are not FSA command currently they will come back to under FSA wings as majority of them are sons of Syrian, foreign jihadist fighters are less than two thousand. Which make sense.
