Washington Halts Financial Assistance in Northwest Syria – Reports

Washington Halts Financial Assistance in Northwest Syria
The US administration has decided to cut financial aid for northwestern Syria and redirect it to areas where it has greater impact, officials told local media on Friday.

Projects on the chopping block include those to counter violent extremism and support independent media, and community policing, administration sources told CBS. Humanitarian aid will not be affected.

President Donald Trump in March suspended over $200 million in funds for recovery efforts in Syria after suggesting that US exit was a matter of time.
