Syria ceasefire ends. Rebels to receive anti-aircraft weapons, expected to use them responsibly.

US / anti-Assad-forces / esteemed-regional-allies
and
Russia / Syrian-government-forces / esteemed-regional-allies

The current ratcheting up involves supplying portable anti-aircraft weapons to rebels. Surely nothing bad can come of this.
