Dissident Syrian colonel: No arms smuggled into Syria

BEIRUT - The leader of Syria's army deserters has denied in a television interview weapons are being smuggled from abroad to defectors, after Damascus accused neighboring states of allowing arms to flow across their borders.
"There is no smuggling - not even a single bullet has passed from Turkey into Syrian territory," Colonel Riad al-Asaad, who is based in southern Turkey, told Al Jazeera television on Saturday.
"Turkey until now has not offered us any military aid, or any kind of security support," he added.
