Blocking arms and oil shipments from Iran to Syria

US government has been quietly trying to block arms and oil shipments from Iran to Syria in a bid to accelerate the fall of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, The Wall Street Journal reported late Sunday.

Citing unnamed US officials, the newspaper said the efforts are aimed at getting Iraq to close its airspace to flights between Iran and Syria flights that US intelligence believes are carrying arms for Syrian pro-government forces.

The report came as government forces in Syria mounted an offensive in the Damascus neighborhood of Barzeh, triggering an exodus of residents, as a rebel commander appeared in a video saying the battle to „liberate“ Aleppo had begun.
