How embarrasing - Hague sending direct military aid (to add to the NATO turkish aid, SAS training & UK arms via BAe Systems, Saudi Arabia & GCC states) to terrorists - whatever next?

 UK to send armoured vehicles to Syrian opposition
Foreign Secretary William Hague: "The cabinet is in no doubt that this is necessary"
The UK is to provide armoured vehicles and body armour to opposition forces in Syria "to help save lives", Foreign Secretary William Hague has said.
It will offer millions of pounds in "non-lethal" equipment, including search and rescue, communications, and disease-prevention materials.
Mr Hague said it was a "necessary, proportionate and lawful" response to "extreme human suffering".
But some MPs said they feared being drawn into a military intervention.
Up to 70,000 people have been killed and a million refugees have fled since the crisis began two years ago.
The latest UN figures show that two million have been internally displaced, while 400,000 have fled abroad since the start of the year, with the largest number seeking shelter in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt.

UN peacekeepers captured by Syrian rebels in Golan Heights
UN Security Council condemns attack

A 20-strong United Nations observer mission has been captured by Syrian rebels on the country's border with Israel.
In a video posted on Youtube, a young man saying he was from the "Martyrs of Yarmouk" brigade said the convoy would not be released until forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad withdrew from the village of Jamla, a mile east of the ceasefire line with the Israeli-occupied Golan.
He stood flanked by other rebels brandishing assault rifles, and in front of three UN vehicles.
At least five people can be seen sitting in the vehicles wearing United Nations light blue helmets and bullet-proof vests..............

Golan Heights: 20 peacekeepers held
About 20 UN observers on a regular supply mission were stopped near an observation post and detained by armed fighters
06 March 2013   
The United Nations says about 20 peacekeepers in the force charged with monitoring the ceasefire between Israel and Syrian troops on the Golan Heights have been detained by approximately 30 armed fighters.
UN deputy spokesman Eduardo del Buey said the UN observers were on a regular supply mission today when they were stopped near an observation post which sustained damage and was evacuated last weekend following heavy combat.
He said the UN peacekeeping mission has dispatched a team to assess the situation and attempt a resolution.
Video circulated by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claims to show Syrian rebels detaining UNDOF (United Nations Disengagement Observer Force) peacekeepers in the city of Daraa.
The rebels, according to the report, accuse the peacekeepers of assisting the Syrian regime in redeploying in an area near the Golan which the fighters had seized a few days ago in battles that led to the death of 11 fighters and 19 regime forces...............
